About the course

With businesses generating and capturing increasing amounts of data, the ability to interpret and present insights in a persuasive way is more crucial now than ever before. Visualizing Data shows you how to make sense of your data, present clear evidence of your findings, and tell engaging stories all through data graphics.

In this eight week course, students can progress at their own pace through the key steps of data visualization. The hands-on lessons will focus on techniques for data preparation — how to choose, create, and edit graphics, as well as best practices for presenting your visualizations.

Program Takeaways

  • Data Formatting and Analysis for Data Graphics – Use visual data exploration methods that aid in data understanding, learn techniques for data preparation including data formatting and cleaning, and identify the target audience and line of inquiry
  • Creation, Refinement, and Presentation of Data Graphics – Identify appropriate data visualization techniques to build data graphics, refine the data graphics to improve clarity, and tell stories with data graphics that will resonate with the audience
  • Data Visualization Case Studies and Examples – See how data graphics are used in practice through case studies showcasing a unique approach to using data graphics in different settings
