Class: Applied Visual Analytics for Fire Investigations
It has been found that most humans, in processing information, do better seeing connections in information when that information is presented in a visual format. When most investigators think of visual analytics they think of massive computers, wall size screens and table tops that enable to investigators to move displays of data around at the touch of a finger. While that technology does exist, for most of us, it is way beyond our departmental budgets.
This does not mean we cannot use some of these concepts to our advantage. This class will introduce to the investigator some low tech (cheap) tools that are useful, easy to use, and effective. The class does include some hands on exercises. Attendees are encouraged to bring case outlines for use in class.
