This subject covers the core data visualisation and visual interaction (or navigation) technologies that support the visual analytics and decision-making processes. Students study the latest data visualisation articles and the practice of cutting-edge data visualisation and visual analysis software. The subject provides an essential understanding of the procedure (loop) and the methodology of visual data analytics. It discusses the human involvement (or input) in the loop of analytical reasoning facilitated by interactive visual interfaces. On successful completion of this subject, students are capable of designing and evaluating various advanced visualisation interfaces that can be directly applied into the loop of visual data mining or visual analytics to enable them to become data visualisation designers and visual data analysts.
