Aim of Course:

In this online course, “Interactive Data Visualization,” you will learn about the interactive exploration of data, and how it is achieved using state-of-the-art data visualization software. Participants will learn to explore a range of different data types and structures. They will learn about various interactive techniques for manipulating and examining the data and producing effective visualizations.

The course is very hands-on in terms of the learning process. Participants will be guided through an exploration of quantitative business data to discern meaningful patterns, trends, relationships, and exceptions that reveal business performance, potential problems and opportunities.

Anticipated learning outcomes:

  • Apply principles of perception to data visualization
  • Use software tools to interactively visualize relationships among variables
  • Analyze distributions of data visually
  • Use a range of displays to explore data
  • Use parallel coordinate plots, scatterplots, and trellising to analyze multivariate data
  • Visualize hierarchical data with treemaps

 

This course may be taken individually (one-off) or as part of a certificate program.
