ITEC2016 Data-driven Visualization for the Web (3 units)
- General Education Core Course from the Information Management Technology Category
- Medium of Instruction:
Information today is overwhelming; we need a way to analyse and interpret information such that its underlying meaning could be quicker to be seen. Data visualization is the most intuitive solution, where visual elements like charts and maps are highly effective in communicating quantitative messages.
What would you do if you want to visualize data on your website today? Manually plotting charts with your drawing software, or generating the same old static charts with your word processing software? In this media-rich HTML5 era, a wide variety of interactive dynamic charts could be easily developed and presented on your website.
Thus, this course aims to equip our students with essential knowledge on web development and data-driven story-telling. On completion of the course, students should be able to develop and publish interactive data visualization on a website.
