Data VisualizationThis course will introduce the students to broad classes of techniques and tools for analyzing and visualizing data at scale. Students will learn basic visualization design and evaluation principles, and learn how to acquire, parse, and analyze large datasets. The course starts with statistical computing, and you will gain experience with SAS Visual Analytics. You will learn the practice of data cleansing, data aggregation, and basic tabulations in producing high quality visualizations.
The learning goals here are to understand how data visualization techniques can help bring complex data to life, how to design effective visualizations, and how to create intuitive, meaningful, visualizations using enterprise standard applications. Course discussion will explore techniques for visualizing multivariate, temporal, text-based, geospatial, hierarchical, and network data. Using case studies drawn from variety of industries and to explore the logic importance of visualizations in modern data analysis and presentation.Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of the course, the students shall be able to :
Concepts and theories to which students are exposed during the course
.If technology has long amplified our participation in social and economic communities, digital technologies today largely condition our ability to interact, to communicate and to influence.
