## 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....

• Once you enroll for a Certificate, you’ll have access to all videos, quizzes, and programming assignments (if applicable). Peer review assignments can only be submitted and reviewed once your session has begun. If you choose to explore the course without purchasing, you may not be able to access certain assignments.
