  • Visualization 2

  • Useful Date Sites


Computing enables and empowers new methods of information processing that have led to 
monumental change across disciplines, from art to business to science. Managing and 
interpreting an overwhelming amount of raw data is part of the foundation of our information 
society and economy. People use computers and computation to translate, process, and visualize 
raw data, enabling new understandings that in turn contribute new knowledge to the world. 
For this task, you and a partner will research and work with data that is of interest to you. You 
will use appropriate computational tools and techniques to transform the raw data into 
information and knowledge.
