Applying Color to Visual Analytics in Data Science

Abstract: Theresa-Marie Rhyne will talk about how to use the concepts of color theory and harmony in creating visual analytics associated with data science. She will show how to use free online and mobile apps to aid in the color scheme selection process. Theresa-Marie is the author of the book "Applying Color Theory to Digital Media and Visualization" from CRC Press and has given tutorials on the subject at IEEE VIS, ACM SIG CHI and ACM SIGGRAPH conferences .

Bio: Theresa-Marie Rhyne is an expert in the field of computer-generated visualization and a consultant who specializes in applying artistic color theories to visualization and digital media. She has consulted with the Stanford University Visualization Group on a color suggestion prototype system, the Center for Visualization at the University of California at Davis, and the Scientific Computing and Imaging Institute at the University of Utah on applying color theory to ensemble data visualization. Her book on "Applying Color Theory to Digital Media and Visualization" was published by CRC Press on November 17, 2016 and since then she has lectured and taught numerous tutorials on the topic. Prior to her consulting work, in the 2000s, she founded the Center for Visualization and Analytics and the Renaissance Computing Institute's Engagement Facility at North Carolina State University.
