This website is for the 2015 Edition of the Visualization class. If you are looking for the Spring 2017 edition, please go here.
This is the new page for CS638/838 Data Visualization. It will be a stream of postings that are news about the class. If you’re in the class, this is probably the first thing you want to look at.
You might be looking for… A Feed of Basic Information about the class, particularly its summary as the Brief Syllabus. Or you might be looking for the Course Announcement. Or perhaps the link to Canvas assignments, where assignments are turned in and discussions happen.
We suggest navigating the website by clicking on the category links to the right.
So, it seems that if you go to: https://aefis.engr.wisc.edu to do your course evaluation, you will see this class listed multiple times.
The authorities have no idea why this is happening (I have a guess).
But… it shouldn’t matter. They all should go to the same place. Just do one of them.
The official course evaluations can be done online. Log into:
and your should see either CS638 or CS838.
Please do the official on-line evaluation! I really do read them, and it really helps for future planning.
Our department is in the process of switching to on-line evaluations. This class is a pilot experiment. (since I am on the committee that has to figure it out). My experience is that online evals are better: less work for the student, and it puts the information in one place so its easier for the people who read the evaluations.
So, please take a few minutes of your time and go to: https://aefis.engr.wisc.edu
Kevin Ponto is teaching his Virtual Reality class this coming Fall. Info is here. It should be cross-listed as a CS class, but the campus curriculum committee is taking its time processing the paperwork.
I am teaching CS559, Computer Graphics, in the event that you’ve gotten used to having a Tuesday/Thursday 11am class with me. It’s kind of the opposite of this class: programming project oriented, math, something I have taught before…
If you’re interested in doing more Vis stuff, let me know. There’s no formal class planned, but there’s always opportunities for projects.
