Information Visualization Showcase

210 South Hall

Join us for the final project exhibition from Info 247: Information Visualization and Presentation.

Student teams have created new and compelling interactive visualizations to enhance comprehension and analysis of structured information. The presentations are as visually interesting as they are informative.

The showcase will be held Tuesday, May 7, and Thursday, May 9. For the full schedule, see the course website.

Preview student projects here.

The goal of information visualization is the unveiling of the underlying structure of large or abstract data sets using visual representations that utilize the powerful processing capabilities of the human visual perceptual system. Information visualization is an exciting topic, and the last decade has witnessed the development of many interesting ideas about how to visualize abstract information.

The course teaches the use of graphics, animation, sound, visualization software, and hypermedia in presenting information to the user. Students experiment with various methods of presenting complex information to enhance comprehension and analysis.
