DATA VISUALIZATION: TOOLS & TECHNIQUES

ONLINE CERTIFICATE COURSE

OBJECTIVE

As big data advances into every industry and organization, finding ways to effectively share and communicate data with diverse audiences remains challenging. Data visualization provides decision makers with a visual representation of their analytics that makes data easier to understand, parse, and act upon. Taught via live online sessions, this course is ideal for professionals or students who want to learn how to characterize the data required to create effective visualizations—and build practical skills using visualization tools that bring their data to life.

 

WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR?

  • The Data Visualization course is ideal for professionals or students seeking to gain an understanding of data visualization, especially in the context of presenting data to make a compelling proposition. The course also teaches hands-on skills using Python, R, Power BI and D3.js.

      Assignments

      Intro to Data Visualization

      • Participants find visualizations and critique based on sound design principles

      Intro to Data Management

      • Insights to data storage and data querying
      • Use data management principles to access data in MySQL
      • Leverage your knowledge to understand the data model of the data you’ll be accessing for visualization, and write a query in SQL to extract data in preparation for visualization
