About the Data Visualization Specialization

Visual representations generated by statistical models help us to make sense of large, complex datasets through interactive exploration, thereby enabling big data to realize its potential for informing decisions. This specialization covers techniques and algorithms for creating effective visualizations based on principles from graphic design, visual art, perceptual psychology, and cognitive science to enhance the understanding of complex data....
