This course will investigate the emergent scientific field of visual analytics. As suggested by the introductory text Illuminating the Path, visual analytics is the science of analytical reasoning facilitated by interactive visual interfaces. To perform visual analytics tasks, analytical tools and techniques must optimally synthesize information and derive insight from massive, dynamic, ambiguous, and often conflicting data. Tools must let investigators detect expected trends as well as discover unexpected trends. In time critical situations, tools must provide timely, defensible, and understandable assessments with an emphasis on suggesting effective action. This seminar will discuss the current visual analytics taxonomy, identify projects active within the research community, and emphasize components supported by guest lecturers, seminal papers, and group discussion.
