In this course students learn about the representation (abstraction) and presentation of data in terms of different visualisation techniques supporting the exploratory analysis for scientific discovery as well as the design of tools for the presentation of large datasets. The theory further covers specific elements of human perception and colour theory and we discuss different design principles and interaction techniques for human-in-the-loop data exploration underlined by various case studies. The theory is applied and further deepened in a group assignment where interactive visualisations are designed and implemented for different rich datasets.
