Do you wish you had superior data interpretation skills?

Does your workplace require data visualization proficiency?

Do you wish to learn about a rich variety of graphs and charts?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, this is the course for you.

Data visualization is the face of data. Many people look at the data and see nothing. The reason for that is that they are not creating good visualizations. Or even worse – they are creating nice graphs but cannot interpret them accurately.

That’s why we’ve created the ‘Introduction to Data Visualization Course’. To help you better understand and interpret different types of charts:

Graphs and charts included in the Complete Data Visualization Course:

  • Bar chart
  • Pie chart
  • Stacked area chart
  • Line chart
  • Histogram
  • Scatter plot
  • Scatter plot with a trendline (regression plot)

We live in the age of data. And being able to gather good data, preprocess it, and model it is crucial.

However, there is nothing more important than being able to interpret that data. And data visualization allows us to achieve just that. At the end of the day, data charts are what conveys the most information in the shortest amount of time. And nothing speaks better than a well-crafted and meaningful data visualization.

The skills you acquire during the course will help you develop an analytical approach when creating any type of chart based on the data you’re given.

At the same time, you’ll be able to interpret charts in general, so you’ll be on top of your game whenever you’re examining someone else’s work. You’ll be able to gain insight from a chart in a short amount of time, as well as spot if something is wrong or missing from a visualization.
