Explore big data frameworks
Demonstrate an integrated approach to big data
Develop an awareness of how to participate effectively in a team working with big data experts
Data visualisation is an important visual method for effective communication and analysing large datasets. Through data visualisations we are able to draw conclusions from data that are sometimes not immediately obvious and interact with the data in an entirely different way.
This course will provide you with an informative introduction to the methods, tools and processes involved in visualising big data. We will also take the time to examine briefly the use of visualisation throughout history dating back as far as 17000 BC.
Introduction to visualisation
Design approaches for visualisation
Visualisation for communication
We have designed the course for people from different fields who want to learn how to produce visualisations that help us better understand real-world big data problems. You will gain the most from the practical exercises if you are comfortable with computer programming however you don’t need to have any prior experience using the software listed below.
