Foundations, Techniques, and Applications of Information Visualization (SIG-III and South Asia Chapter)

The development and application of information visualization are exciting in science, business, and technology. Visually and interactive presenting data in compelling graphs and charts can help us gain a deeper understanding of stories in massive datasets. Although there are many available techniques and tools of visualization, it is still important to execute effective design and best practices to create clear and accurate visualizations. This Webinar will introduce the basic framework and workflow of information visualization first. With the framework, we will discuss how to effectively use various visual elements (channels and marks) to encode different types of datasets and interaction designs. There is a growing number of techniques and tools of visualization that we can choose from to implement our design. This Webinar will also introduce the latest development in visualization and discuss the most appropriate technical solution for a particular purpose.
