Data visualisation is an important visual method for effective communication and analysing
large datasets. Through data visualisations we are able to draw conclusions from data that are sometimes not immediately obvious and interact with the data in an entirely different way.
This course will provide you with an informative
introduction to the methods, tools and processes involved in visualising big data. It is focused on communicating complex information with visually appealing charts, graphs and maps. Participants will learn to create clear and meaningful visualizations using publicly available data, tell stories with interactive maps, and create beautiful and effective graphs and charts.
We will use a variety of tools to help you understand and grow skills in analyzing and visualizing big data using maps, graphics, mashups and related tools. You’ll work hands-on with the tools and create real examples of charts, graphs and maps. This assures that you will be able to apply your new skill set immediately upon completion of the training.
