Overview of (a lot of) different visualization techniques, different kinds of data, and how to possilby evaluate visualizations. Students present material from scientific publications to each other.
- Students prepare small presentation (10 min.) about a paper that describes evaluation of a visualization method. Other possible topics are: foundations of human visual perception, and similar/related topics. Two suitable papers should be suggested by students, one of this is then used for the presentation. A 3-page summary of the chosen paper has to be submitted, along the slides.
- Groups of 2 students conduct a "thinking aloud study" about an (interactive) visualization, and write 3-page report
- Lecture dates then consist mainly of presentations by students, plus small discussions
Interest in visualization techniques and methods, as well as in evaluation methods (less important) will help.
- 1 presentation about a paper to prepare
- 3-page report
Prof. Pohl grade students fairly. Basically, you need to prepare your presentation well. Then you will be graded accordingly.
Dauer der Zeugnisausstellung
SS18: 31.07.2018; 20.09.2018
Not too high. Paper search, preparation of presentation + report, thinking aloud study (depending on your group partner) + write up. Presence is mandatory (1x absence is OK), so lecture dates.
If you are interested in the theory of information visualization techniques, I would recommend to visit Prof. Pohl's VO TU Wien:Cognitive Foundations of Visualization VO (Pohl) or Prof. Miksch's VO TU Wien:Information Visualization VO (Gschwandtner, Aigner, Miksch).
