The Chair of Visual Analytics (https://vcg.informatik.uni-rostock.de/en/)
investigates methods to support humans understand large and complex data.
To maximize human-machine synergies, we combine expressive visual
representations, effective interaction techniques, and powerful analytical
approaches. As part of the Institute for Visual & Analytic Computing (
https://vac.uni-rostock.de/en/), we collaborate closely with partners in
various domains to activate the full potential of Visual Analytics
approaches for gaining insight into heterogeneous and multi-faceted data.
