We are living in a world where data has been identified as a critical, important, and valuable resource. In this context, analysts and data scientists have to be supported to perceive, understand and share patterns or interrelations in large and complex data sets. The visual analysis of data is a key technology to attack this so-called big data challenge. This course extends "Information Visualization" with visualization techniques/systems for special data sets, such as networked data, time-dependent data, text, or document collections. Furthermore, we discuss the evaluation of visualizations as well as applications in bioinformatics, geography, etc.
