Data without a way to convey the story behind it to yourself or others is just numbers on a page. You can observe and tell the story of your data in a more impactful way through visualization. In this module, you will learn the basics of data visualization using R, including the fundamental components that are shared by all charts and plots, and how to bring those components to life using the ggplot2 package for R. You will also learn how to create three common chart types, including bar, histogram, and pie charts, from the qualitative and quantitative data.

Your data tells a story. You have built the charts and plots that show important relationships between variables, identify outliers and anomalies, and see the trends that can help you predict what the future might bring. Now you want to put these insightful data visualizations at the fingertips of your stakeholders and make it easy to interact with and explore the data. You need a dashboard! In this module, you will learn why dashboards are important and then build interactive dashboards using the Shiny package for R. You will learn how Shiny dashboards are structured into user interface and server components and then build out these components and develop the logic to make them work together. You will also learn how to deploy your dashboards and provide a way to generate informative reports with R Markdown.
