    LEARNING AND TEACHING METHODS

    Lectures will cover the foundation concepts and techniques important to understanding the design and analysis of visual and cartographic data presentation. In practical work, students will gain hands-on experience with a range of visualisation tools and techniques using R. Also other practical development tools, like the Processing language, will be applied to a range of spatial visualisation problems, including an international visualisation challenge.
