To create effective data visualizations, you must be part statistician, part designer, and part storyteller. In his bestselling book Visualize This, Nathan Yau introduced you to the tools and programming techniques for visualization.

  • Learn how to explore your data, find the story, and bring it to life
  • Understand visualization as a medium that lets you present and express meaning in data
  • Tap into your creative side and determine the most effective way to tell your story
