The course is planned to be held as an online event.
The VU Visual Data Science will discuss how techniques from visualisation and visual analytics can be applied to data science. The lecture will start with a theoretical introduction to different concepts of visualisation and visual analytics (lecture 1-5). The second part of the lecture (lecture 6-10) will deal with the practical application of Visual Data Science, namely the selection of charts, trust in visualisations, and applications and libraries. An important part of this VU will be the lab part, where students will have to try out different visualisation techniques and applications to achieve certain tasks.

The lab part of the VU consists of two parts. Lab organisation and submissions are done via TUWEL.
In the first part we will study the relations betwen statistical analysis and visual data analysis. A multivariate dataset is provided, and three tasks have to be solved, using statistical methods and visual analysis. A written report has to be submitted until November 18th, 2020.
In this second lab part students can decide whether they would like to focus on creating a dashboard for data analysis and presentation, or on the comparison of existing libraries and applications. The results of the second lab part will be discussed in submission talks in January. A written report has to be submitted until January 17th, 2021.
The submission talks & exams will take place from January 18th to February 12th, 2021. Registration will be done via TUWEL.
The following points can be achieved in the lecture:
|Lab part 1 (report)||20 points|
|Lab part 2 (report)||30 points|
|Submission Talk / Presentation||30 points|
|Exam questions (during submission talk)||20 points|
The points define the final grade:
|Sehr Gut (1)||> 85 points|
|Gut (2)||> 75 points|
|Befriedigend (3)||> 62 points|
|Genügend (4)||> 50 points|
|Nicht Genügend (5)||<= 50 points|
