BSAN 6100 Data Visualization and Geographic Information Systems

3 semester hours

A picture is worth a thousand words, and a map is worth a thousand pictures. This course is intended to equip students with principles, skills, tools, and techniques in data visualization to be able to tell a story through data visually. Students will be able to uncover relationships between data in exploratory data analysis through visualization and present meaningful and interactive reports to non-technical persons, managers, and executives. In addition, students will dive into the use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS), where students can explore data spatially. Topics include data visualization design principles, exploratory data analysis through visualization, interactive dashboard creation, introduction to GIS tools and techniques, and hot spot analysis.
