New Fall Elective Course: Data Visualization

Course Number: ARTS 370-VT: Special Topics in Design
Class Number: 44395
Day & Time: Fridays 2PM-5:50PM
Topic: Data Visualization
Instructor: Danne Woo
The massive amounts of data that we produce is steadily rising year after year. This evergrowing sea of information needs to be understood. Since we are all naturally visual people, the best way to understand this data is to graphically interpret it as data visualizations. This class will focus on sourcing publicly available data sets, analyzing these data sets to understand the story in the numbers, and designing visualizations based on our findings. The first half of the semester will focus on printed infographics and the second will be entirely interactive interpretations of the data using HTML5.
