Data Structures and Representation


How information is represented can significantly impact how information is accessed and disseminated; whether data is structured or unstructured, controlled by vocabularies or free-form, numbers or text, can determine how it is collected, processed, and stored. In this course, students will learn about a variety of internal and external data structures, how data is transmitted between systems, and the impact of representation on applications and users.
