El objetivo del curso de visualización de la información es dar a los alumnos una serie de principios para elaborar aplicaciones de visualización de datos y guiarlos en el aprendizaje de las herramientas que se necesitan para realizar aplicaciones de visualización de forma eficiente y eficaz.
Los contenidos incluirán los fundamentos teóricos de la visualización, teoría de la percepción, el pipeline de visualización, los diferentes tipos de representación de la información y los métodos principales de interacción.

CE1 - Skillfully use mathematical concepts and methods that underlie the problems of science and data engineering.
CE4 - Use current computer systems, including high performance systems, for the process of large volumes of data from the knowledge of its structure, operation and particularities.
CE5 - Design and apply techniques of signal processing, choosing between different technological tools, including those of Artificial vision, speech recognition and multimedia data processing.
CE7 - Demonstrate knowledge and ability to apply the necessary tools for the storage, processing and access to data.
CE10 - Visualization of information to facilitate the exploration and analysis of data, including the choice of adequate representation of these and the use of dimensionality reduction techniques.
CT3 [Avaluable] - Efficient oral and written communication. Communicate in an oral and written way with other people about the results of learning, thinking and decision making; Participate in debates on topics of the specialty itself.
CT4 - Teamwork. Be able to work as a member of an interdisciplinary team, either as a member or conducting management tasks, with the aim of contributing to develop projects with pragmatism and a sense of responsibility, taking commitments taking into account available resources.
CT5 [Avaluable] - Solvent use of information resources. Manage the acquisition, structuring, analysis and visualization of data and information in the field of specialty and critically evaluate the results of such management.
CT7 - Third language. Know a third language, preferably English, with an adequate oral and written level and in line with the needs of graduates.
CB3 - That students have the ability to gather and interpret relevant data (usually within their area of ??study) to make judgments that include a reflection on relevant social, scientific or ethical issues.
CB4 - That the students can transmit information, ideas, problems and solutions to a specialized and non-specialized public.
Generic Technical Competences
CG2 - Choose and apply the most appropriate methods and techniques to a problem defined by data that represents a challenge for its volume, speed, variety or heterogeneity, including computer, mathematical, statistical and signal processing methods.

Introduction to visualization
In this topic we will discuss the need for visualization of data and the objectives of the visualization tools.
Perception and color
Visual perception is a very important factor when creating visualizations, since the visual system is the one that receives the greatest amount of information that we perceive. In this topic we will talk about the visual system, and some theories of the perception of color and forms.
Visual representations of the data
There are a large number of methods of data representation: tables, graphs, trees, etc. In this topic we will visit them and we will end up giving some guides to select the most appropriate representation for each problem.
Visualization of multiple data
In many cases, the information that we want to represent will be highly complex and we will often find ourselves in the situation of having to represent multiple variables. Here we will discuss different possibilities that will be detailed in later issues.
Animation and interaction

Si és necessari, les classes passaran a ser a través de videoconferència. Serà responsabilitat dels alumnes assistir a les sessions. S'intentarà mantenir els exàmens de forma presencial. Si això no es pot fer, s'habilitaran mitjans per a realitzar-los amb les millors garanties possibles, que podrien incloure fer-los de forma oral, a través d'Atenea, o substituir-los per una pràctica individual.
