Students will be admitted to the exam after the registration on the website http://esami.unipi.it. The exam consists of a discussion of the project. It is mandatory to submit a short report (6-10 pages) within the deadline by mail to the instructor, specifying the tag “[VA]” in the subject.
The student may choose one of the following project proposals. She/he can also propose an additional topic. In this case, a project proposal should be submitted for approval, containing a description of the data, a sketch of the possible visualization, and the motivation for the project.
The project assignment for the exam consists of the realization of a web application addressing data and mini-challenges presented for the VAST challenge 2021 (https://vast-challenge.github.io/2019/index.html). Each student may choose one of the mini-challenges to build a visual interface that answers the proposed questions (see the list on the corresponding page in the VAST website).
This project has the objective of creating a visual dashboard to explore and browse geographical and geological data. This is a joint project with the IGG institute of CNR. Data available for the project can not be shared publicly. If interested, send me an email to fix a meeting to discuss this in more detail.
