Learner Reviews & Feedback for Data Visualization with R by IBM
About the Course
Welcome to Data Visualization with R!
You have completed your data analysis, but do you really have a full picture of the results? Sometimes trends, patterns, or anomalies are not obvious when looking at raw data, so you can use data visualization techniques to help you see this information and communicate its story to others.
In this course, you will learn the Grammar of Graphics, a system for describing and building graphs, and how the ggplot2 data visualization package for R applies this concept to basic bar charts, histograms, pie charts, scatter plots, line plots, and box plots. You will also learn how to further customize your charts and plots using themes and other techniques. You will then learn how to use another data visualization package for R called Leaflet to create map plots, a unique way to plot data based on geolocation data. Finally, you will be introduced to creating interactive dashboards using the R Shiny package. You will learn how to create and customize Shiny apps, alter the appearance of the apps by adding HTML and image components, and deploy your interactive data apps on the web.
You will practice what you learn and build hands-on experience by completing labs in each module and a final project at the end of the course.
Watch the videos, work through the labs, and watch your data science skill grow. Good luck!
NOTE: This course requires knowledge of working with R and data. If you do not have these skills, it is highly recommended that you first take the Introduction to R as well as the Data Analysis with R courses from IBM prior to starting this course....
