I highly recommend taking this free online course on visualizing information
which starts January 13 and runs through the Spring 2015 semester.
Let me know if you're taking it this semester so the various Feds can work
together throughout the semester.



The Information Visualization MOOC (IVMOOC) is now open for registration

Students will learn the theoretical and technical skills needed to create
insightful information visualizations and they will work with real-world
clients and data as a team. 
* Spring 2015 list of clients and projects
* 2013 Student projects from the "Visual Insights" textbook

Each unit of the course corresponds to a chapter in the Visual Insights: A
Practical Guide to Making Sense of Data textbook
Additionally, Part 2 of the Atlas of Knowledge: Anyone Can Map
( is available for free to facilitate
understanding of the material.
