Description

Modern society is often referred to as 'the information society' - but how can we make sense of all the information we are bombarded with?

In this course, Visualisation: Visual representations of data and information, you will learn how to interpret, and in some cases create, visual representations of data and information that help us to see things in a different way.

Course learning outcomes

After studying this course, you should be able to:

  • Understand what is meant by the term ‘visualisation’ within the context of data and information
  • Interpret and create a range of visual representations of data and information
  • Recognise a range of visualisation models such as cartograms, choropleth maps and hyperbolic trees
  • Select an appropriate visualisation model to represent a given data set
  • Recognise when visualisations are presenting information in a misleading way.
