CS 242 - Data Visualization

Announcements

  • **NEW** November 19, 2015 - Guidelines for the oral reports uploaded. See the righthand side for the link, and kindly read the document. See you on Tuesday. :)
  • November 9, 2015 - I have to attend to a personal matter tomorrow afternoon, so no consultations would be held tomorrow. I am calling for a mandatory consultation on November 11, Thursday, to check up on your respective reports. Please be guided accordingly. Thank you very much and see you on Thursday.
  • October 29, 2015 - Problem Set 3 Questionnaire now up. I would like for us all to meet on November 3, Tuesday, so I can follow up on your progress for the Oral Reports. Speaking of which, the order of presentations is now settled (see Oral Reports section). See you by then. :)
  • October 27, 2015 - I've decided to move the release of the questionnaire for Problem Set 3 on October 29, 2015. I've adjusted the deadline accordingly as well.
  • October 6, 2015 - Problem Set 2 Questionnaire and Dataset now up. UPDATE: Slides used in the discussions from Introduction up to the topic a while ago are now available. Check the right hand side under each topic for the link marked "Slides". Also, October 8 will be allotted for consultations regarding the datasets you will be using for the reports, so no lectures will be conducted by then. As for the basic criterion of acceptability of the dataset, your dataset should at least contain 30 samples, and have at least 7 attributes/features. Please be guided accordingly. See you on Thursday. :)
  • September 28, 2015 - We hold classes tomorrow, September 29, 2015, starting 1:20pm. Please be guided accordingly. See you all tomorrow. :)
  • September 15, 2015 - Firstly, my sincerest and humblest apologies for abruptly cancelling classes today. Secondly, we will also not have any classes on September 17, Thursday, as well as on September 22, Tuesday next week. We will resume classes on September 24, picking up where we left off (tools for trees visualization). Please be guided accordingly.
  • September 9, 2015 - Materials for Graphs and Networks up.
  • September 3, 2015 - I've uploaded an Excel file containing the analysis we did for two of the PCDSPO infographics a week ago. Check out the Analysis Exercise link to download.
  • September 1, 2015 - Problem Set 1 questionnaire now up. See right hand side of the page under the Materials column. Deadline of submission is on September 22, 2015, 11:59pm.
  • August 31, 2015 - No classes tomorrow, September 1. I have a couple of "chores" that I have to do that I need to finish by tomorrow. I will still be posting the questionnaire/specs for Problem Set 1 on the site tomorrow. Please be guided accordingly. Hoping for your understanding, and see you on Thursday. :)
  • August 26, 2015 - Check out the link to the PCDSPO infographics portfolio. We will be "critiquing" some of them on Thursday, using the concepts we learned the past 3 sessions.
  • August 21, 2015 - Readings! Videos! Readings and videos! On Constructing Narratives, that is. Because the Filipino is worth visualizing for. Happy long weekend! :)
  • August 11, 2015 -  If you have some free time on Thursday, August 13, between 4pm and 6pm, I would like to invite you to attend the lecture I am going to give entitled "Algorithmics in Data Visualization". This is part of the Algorithms and Complexity Laboratory's Graduate Lecture Series for AY 2015-2016. Details about the talk here. Hope you could come. :)
  • August 6, 2015 - First off, my sincerest apologies for abruptly canceling classes a while ago. To keep you busy while waiting for next week, I've placed a list of readings to get you started with data visualization. We will be tackling pertinent parts of those next week Tuesday. And since we're already two sessions behind, we are going to be having an "extended" session starting Tuesday, i.e. we will start class at 1:05pm and end at 2:30pm to make up for lost time. I will also be adjusting our calendar upon recomputation of the adjustments needed for this mishap. So again, I'm really sorry for again delaying the start of our class, and I hope you enjoy reading the materials I posted. See you next week! :)
  • August 5, 2015 - We will hold classes in Room 317 on Thursday, August 6. Please be guided accordingly.
  • August 4, 2015 - This is the website for the CS 242 (Data Visualization) class of Jan Michael Yap. Announcements and files pertinent to the class will be posted here.
