The unit of study introduces the principles of information visualisation design, with special attention to aesthetic communication of data, data analytics, and user engagement. Key concepts covered in this unit include: abstract data visualisation; data acquisition; and parsing and processing of data. Using a combination of vector graphics software tools such as Adobe Illustrator and programming languages for processing data, students will develop information visualisations of real-world datasets that are both communicative and engaging. The unit will equip students with the skills to produce static as well as web-ready interactive data visualisations. This unit is a core unit in the Bachelor of Design Computing program. It involves 6 hours of class time per week: 1 hour lecture, 2 hours tutorials, and 3 hours of studio time. 
 Architecture, Design and Planning • Schedule All assessments are due 11:59 pm of the noted date.

Weight 20% Due date & time 15 March 2020, 11:59 pm Learning outcomes assessed 1,2,3,5 (2) Assessment title Exploratory Data Analysis Assessment description A primary aim of data visualisation is to answer questions from the data, and to negate or confirm any hypotheses from the data. Exploratory data analysis helps in visual, non-statistical, non- computational, non-mathematical ways to enable this aim. In this assessment, you will choose a data set and you will pose a particular question, analyse the data using the exploratory analysis methods covered in the tutorials and studios. You will then generate a final visualization, that brings out the affirmation or the negation of your hypothesis, based on your data analysis. Please refer to the template that is provided alongside on Canvas. You will do the following: 1. Choose a particular domain and a data set that you are interested in. 2. Pose an initial question, and then refine it. 3. Conduct exploratory analysis and report on it. 4. Produce a final visualization answering the posed question. The exploratory analysis process will be covered in detail in class. Submit a 2-5 (single) A4 page report as a pdf, using only 11pt font (Times or similar) or 10 pt font (Arial, Helvetica or similar) reporting on the Exploratory Data Analysis process, and then finally concluding with how you answered the question you posed. Marking Criteria: Marks will be assigned on the following breakdown, fractional marks may be awarded on each dimension: Criteria/Learning outcome Maximum marks Description Design skills in correctly designing and formatting all parts of a visualisation 5 Are Title, Axes, Legends, Data Sources, and all detailed parts of a visualisation present?

Weight 30% Due date & time 19 April 2020, 11:59 pm Learning outcomes assessed 1,2,3,4,5 (3) Assessment title Interactive visualisation Design Assessment description In this assessment, you will use web techniques taught in class to design an interactive visualisation. What interactions, transitions or animations have you designed that allow you to address specific design intentions: for example, (a) encode layers of data, (b) draw attention to proper places, or the principle of overview, zoom, filter, details on demand. Have a solid rationale and reasoning for incorporating specific interactions. Faculty of Architecture, Design and Planning These elements MUST be there in all visualisations: – A title – The visualisation with any labels, text, annotations, axes, legends, interactions – Data source The visualisation must explain on its own the key message that you want to convey. Additionally, submit 2-5 (single) A4 pages as a pdf, using only 11pt font (Times or similar) or 10 pt font (Arial, Helvetica or similar), as Design Process Book: – Your description of the data and various exploratory analyses you performed on raw data to produce the indicator. Include descriptions of any calculations, transformations, formatting, or any other steps you performed on your data. – Your description of the intended audience who will interact with your data visualization (user persona) – Your description and justification of the interactions you designed, and how you think this clearly explains the main message you want to convey to users. – Your justification of the design choices, covering chart type, annotations, labels, visual encodings, interactions, transitions, animations, visual choices, fonts, colours, any cleaning/pruning of the data you did, what parts of the data you used, and what parts you did not use. How did your choices enable you to communicate the main message clearly and succinctly? Explicitly address how your choices allowed you achieve specific visualization goals like encoding layers of data, reducing cognitive load, direct the audience’s attention, or use the principle of overview, zoom, filter and details on demand. There is a mandatory but unmarked very short presentation at the end of the course on Assessment 3 by all students, presenting in groups to their tutors (25th of May, 2020). Doing the presentation is mandatory, but not doing it will result in penalties. The format and time for the presentation will be released closer to the date.

Visit http://sydney.edu.au/elearning/student/EI/index.shtml to learn about these resources. • Concerns About Teaching and Assessment There is a three-step process to appeal an academic decision. 1. Informal appeal: approach the original decision maker to discuss your concerns about the academic decision (e.g. your mark). University policy requires you to raise concerns within 15 working days of the academic decision (e.g. release of mark). 2. Faculty-level appeal: if you feel that your appeal has not been adequately addressed at the informal level, you can submit a formal written appeal to the School of Architecture, Design and Planning’s Academic Support Unit at [email protected] Your appeal should include a letter outlining the grounds for your appeal and any evidence you have to support your appeal. The Associate Dean Education or a delegate will assess the appeal and a formal outcome will be sent to you in writing. University policy requires you to file a faculty-level appeal within 20 working days of learning the outcome of the informal appeal. 3. University-level appeal: If you are dissatisfied with the findings of the formal appeal and believe that due academic process was not followed, you can submit an appeal to the Student Appeals Body within 15 days of receiving the outcome of the faculty-level appeal. For more details on Academic Appeals, see: http://sydney.edu.au/student_affairs/academic_appeals/process.shtml There is a two-step process to complain about a non-academic decision. 1. Informal resolution: approach the person that you believe is responsible for the issue, explain the problem, and ask that they behave differently. 2. Make a complaint: if a problem cannot be resolved through informal resolution, or if informal resolution is not appropriate, you can refer your complaint to the Student Affairs Unit of the University. For more details on the complaint procedures, see: http://sydney.edu.au/policies/showdoc.aspx?recnum=PDOC2015/408&RendNum=0 • Support Services and Resources Faculty of Architecture, Design and Planning The Learning Centre runs many workshops on academic skills, free of charge to all students.
