University of Sydney Course Explorer – Visualisation

October 30, 2011 § Leave a comment

For the final project of COMP5048 Information Visualisation, we decided to visualise the various faculties, courses and subjects within the University. With a specific focus on shared subjects amongst courses and faculties.

We initially intended to go with a node-network representation, but there were simply too many nodes.

Instead, we opted to use multiple of visualisations with related datasets and interactions, as depicted in the video below:

In the future, larger amounts of time could have been devoted to exploring the representation of the datasets as nodes, however, given our time-frame, I stand by our decision to use interaction to enhance the mental model across different complementary visualisations.

The following is our report.
