Projects in the specialization allow students to decode, critique, and redesign visualizations, design effective color scales, and design and develop a full interactive visualization using real-world data sets. Each project is designed to enable students to demonstrate mastery of the course learning objectives.
Information Visualization Specialization
Design, evaluate and develop data visualizations. Master the foundational principles and practice of information visualization
About This Specialization
This specialization provides learners with the necessary knowledge and practical skills to develop a strong foundation in information visualization and to design and develop advanced applications for visual data analysis. The specialization is characterized by two main complementary features: (1) providing a strong understanding of visual perception and the theory of visual encoding to design and evaluate innovative visualization methods; (2) providing the necessary skills to develop advanced web-based applications for visual data analysis. The specialization is organized around four courses that cover fundamentals, applied perception, advanced visualization method and interactive visualization. The specialization is meant to prepare students to work on complex data science projects that require the development of interactive visual interfaces for data analysis. The courses can also be taken individually to improve relevant skills in visualization. For instance, the course on applied perception provides unique skills to evaluate and design innovative visualization in all sorts of scenarios.
