Objectives Visual Analytics (VA) can be defined as the science of analytical reasoning supported by interactive visual interfaces. VA is highly interdisciplinary and combines fields including visualization, data mining, data management, as well as human perception and cognition. In this course, students will learn how large and complex data, such as tables, networks, and text, can be effectively explored and analyzed using interactive means. In addition to the lecture, students can take an optional lab to learn how to apply VA theory to real-world visual data analysis problems.
