Information visualisation concerns the design and implementation of presentations of often complex information in such a way that users are able to efficiently and effectively extract the relevant features in and for their given context, and are able to gain insight about the information which might not otherwise have been possible. This paper aims to provide an awareness of the potential offered by visualisation techniques, a familiarity with the underlying concepts, and an understanding and ability to effectively design and apply information visualisations in a given context.
