Introduction to Visual Analytics

If you have just been introduced to the term visual analytics (VA), you should participate in this boot camp. It will provide a solid foundation for anyone not familiar with VA, including an introduction to visual analytics and its role in decision-making and knowledge discovery.

We will show how you can use VA to create interactive visual displays from large, heterogeneous data sets. We'll also look at real-world examples and watch videos and interactive demos of visual analysis.

Currently not available for registration.
