This two-day seminar provides an intensive, hands-on introduction to the principles and practice of data visualization. We will begin with an overview of some basic principles. Students will learn how to produce and refine plots using ggplot, a powerful, versatile, and widely-used visualization library for R. Topics covered include plotting continuous and categorical variables, layering information on graphics; faceting grouped data to produce effective “small multiple” plots; transforming data to easily produce visual summaries on the graph such as trend lines, linear fits, error ranges, and boxplots; creating maps, together with simpler alternatives to maps for country – or state – level data.
At the end of the course, participants will:
- Understand the basic principles behind effective data visualization
- Have a practical sense for why some graphs and figures work well while others may fail to inform or actively mislead
The course does have a fee of $995, which includes all the course material. There is a early registration fee available until November 7. CLICK HERE to register for the course.
