Invitation: Data Visualization Final Showcase Event

Data Visualization Final Showcase Event
Wednesday May 10, 2-5pm
Location: Dell 1 building, west entry, Data Science space -
behind Physics and the Curry School of Education

On Wednesday May 10, we invite you to stop by, view, and participate in the Final Showcase for this year’s course in Data Visualization, SARC 5400.

This course in Architecture, taught by myself and Adalie Pierce-McManamon and supported by the UVA Data Science Institute, brings together 76 students across six schools and 19 departments of the university – from Architecture and Urban Planning to Public Policy, Engineering, Computer Science, Political and Social Thought, Data Science, English, History, Economics, Statistics, and more.  Students have been studying visual approaches toward exploration and problem solving through data and information, and the construction of both static and web-dynamic visuals.

Come view and help us celebrate the accomplishments of this year’s class, and explore hands-on their final visuals of “Security and Vulnerability”, this year’s theme, along with a few capstones.  The format will be an open fair of presentations and discussion, so come for as much as you can and stay as long as you are able.

Archives from past years are online here if you want to check them out.
