We live in a data age with immense amount of data around us. To understand the information hidden in the data, it helps to put the data in a visual context. The course will teach you how to use different shapes like points, lines, bars, boxes etc. to communicate the information from the data. By using simple techniques we can communicate the information hidden in data clearly and effectively.
