University of Sydney Course Explorer – Visualisation

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.

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.
