About the Course

"A picture is worth a thousand words". We are all familiar with this expression. It especially applies when trying to explain the insight obtained from the analysis of increasingly large datasets. Data visualization plays an essential role in the representation of both small and large-scale data. One of the key skills of a data scientist is the ability to tell a compelling story, visualizing data and findings in an approachable and stimulating way. Learning how to leverage a software tool to visualize data will also enable you to extract information, better understand the data, and make more effective decisions. The main goal of this Data Visualization with Python course is to teach you how to take data that at first glance has little meaning and present that data in a form that makes sense to people. Various techniques have been developed for presenting data visually but in this course, we will be using several data visualization libraries in Python, namely Matplotlib, Seaborn, and Folium. LIMITED TIME OFFER: Subscription is only $39 USD per month for access to graded materials and a certificate....

The course with the IBM Lab is a very good way to learn and practice. The tools we've learned in this module can supply a good material to enrich all data work that need to be presented in a nice way.

Great course, one of the best course to get hands-on learning for Data Visualization with Python. Particularly the lap exercise, it will make you think on every line of code you write. Excellent!!!

The course was good, syllabus was okay, I think that seaborn could have also been added in this, though waffle chart and map was very new for me...

Good condense course. One thing is a the recall of the data set and the lab at the beginning or at the end of each lecture which are very annoying.

A good overview of different visualization methods in Python. The final assignment is a little tricky and requires a diverse set of Python skills.

Its a great course to learn all Data Visualization libraries in python and thier constructs. It helps me alot to learn Data Science using Python.

Good course. However, the instructor should add a slide mentioning what kind of errors can occur in python programming and how to correct them.

Some instructions could have been clearer. The final project required code that wasn't covered in the lessons. Had to research the internet.

Not all code examples were explained thoroughly enough within the labs, definitely not within the videos. Generally a good overview though.

Overall good course that goes through basics. It would be nice to get the students to write more code in the ungraded external tool (labs).

Could use a little more detail in the lectures, especially in the code being shown. Example, Folium library. Overall met expectations.

Very interesting summary of different graphs I saw in my life, though the data can't be imported to the Jupyter notebook for exercises.

Great course with a lot of avaliable tools for using in data analysis. Although i'd enhance the didactive material offered in the labs

A very good course which begins with the basics of visualization and then dives deep into various kinds of visualization techniques.

Good overview, sometimes a little too much copy and pasty, not enough critical thinking required that would help solidify the ideas

Great course! lots of useful visualization techniques were covered. Final project was very good. Quality of videos can be improved.

Nice introductory course on basic visualisation patterns. Videos are short and needs additional readings and examples to work with.

I learned a lot. I was very challenged. The Dash programming needs to work early in the course to build confidence in the teacher.

course is great, but most of the content is covered in lab sessions. please if possible try to add more content in video lectures

Very interesting content! But, most quizzes test on content that wasn't taught in the course so the quizzes are very difficult.

Comprehensive course with detailed lab practice to reinforce taught topics. Would be nice to have in-video quizzes for recaps.

Good course, however, should add some additional readings on the topics. Because the videos don't develop too much the topics.

Liked the course, but way to hard final exam. Had to hack and make all sorts of twist and turns to get the dashboard running.

This course provides a good and brief knowledge about data visualization and the labs and final project are also satisfying.

good basics + interesting things like maps. Only 4 stars because I find map visualization interesting but not very useful
