Course Website:

Visual Analytics (INLS 641) is a graduate-level course offered by the UNC School of Information and Library Science. It will provide an overview of Visual Analytics, a topic that combines information visualization and data analysis to support analytical reasoning via highly interactive visual interfaces. The course will review foundational concepts, recent research results, and commonly used technologies. The course is project-oriented and will require that students program their own web-based visualization systems using HTML and JavaScript. While no specific courses are considered prerequisites, students should be competent programmers. Prior experience with web programming (e.g., HTML and Javascript) is strongly recommended.

Note: This course was offered previously as INLS 690-224.  Beginning Fall 2017, the course has been assigned an official course number of INLS 641.
