Overview of the Module
Welcome to the Data Visualization
The module is taken by students on two programmes:
The CFD students do a shortened version of
MSc in Distributed Multimedia Systems
MSc in Computational Fluid Dynamics
The objectives of the module are:
Visualization can be seen as covering a

to gain insight into both numeric data (from science, engineering and
for example) and also non-numeric information (such as networks and
to understand the fundamental

The CFD students cover mainly Scientific
while the Distributed Multimedia Systems students cover additional

Information Visualization, where the
may be numerical or non-numerical, and often the relationship between
variables is less well understood
The assessment for the module will be
by written examination, and 50% by coursework.
