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 on information visualization focuses on the use of visualization techniques to help people understand and analyze abstract data, such as tabular or multidimensional information sources. It covers basics in perception, interaction, and visual representations.


Roughly 15 minutes with a bike from the city centre, you will find Linnaeus University’s campus. It is like a small society with the university, student accommodation, and student life. Here you become part of a creative knowledge environment.

What will you come across on an excursion in Växjö – the city of contrasts? You will find good restaurants, a celebrated hockey team, and cozy cafés where you can enjoy a latte with lingonberry flavour. In Växjö, beautiful nature is always just around the corner; the city is surrounded by lakes and forests. Students like the combination of the city centre and the active student life on campus. Your dream of the future starts here!
