Description: Data is being generated by humans and algorithms at an astounding rate. Having the ability to analyze and interpret this data visually is a key technique for coping with this explosion. This class will cover the basic ways that various types of data can be visualized and what properties distinguish useful visualizations from not so useful ones. The class will use Python as both the primary tool for processing the data as well creating visualizations of this data. To enhance the students’ depth of knowledge, the class will also cover some of the geometric algorithms used to create advanced visualizations. In order to enroll in an online section of this course, you are expected to have a working camera and microphone. During class sessions, you must be able to participate using your microphone and you are expected to have your camera on for the duration of the class so that you are visible to the instructor and other students in the class, just as you would be in an in-person class.
