Data Visualization with Tableau Specialization
Offered By University of California, Davis

About this Specialization
In 2020 the world will generate 50 times the amount of data as in 2011. And 75 times the number of information sources (IDC, 2011). Being able to use this data provides huge opportunities and to turn these opportunities into reality, people need to use data to solve problems.

This Specialization, in collaboration with Tableau, is intended for newcomers to data visualization with no prior experience using Tableau. We leverage Tableau's library of resources to demonstrate best practices for data visualization and data storytelling. You will view examples from real-world business cases and journalistic examples from leading media companies.

By the end of this specialization, you will be able to generate powerful reports and dashboards that will help people make decisions and take action based on their business data. You will use Tableau to create high-impact visualizations of common data analyses to help you see and understand your data. You will apply predictive analytics to improve business decision making. The Specialization culminates in a Capstone Project in which you will use sample data to create visualizations, dashboards, and data models to prepare a presentation to the executive leadership of a fictional company.

  • Examine, navigate, and learn to use the various features of Tableau
  • Assess the quality of the data and perform exploratory analysis
  • Create and design visualizations and dashboards for your intended audience
  • Combine the data to and follow the best practices to present your story

Data Visualization with Python
Offered By IBM

About this 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.

This course is part of multiple Specializations
  • A Specialization is a series of courses that help you master a skill. When you complete this course, your progress will count towards your learning in any of these Specializations:
  • IBM Data Science Professional Certificate
  • Applied Data Science

Data Visualization with Tableau Project
Offered By University of California, Davis

About this Course
In this project-based course, you will follow your own interests to create a portfolio worthy single-frame viz or multi-frame data story that will be shared on Tableau Public. You will use all the skills taught in this Specialization to complete this project step-by-step, with guidance from your instructors along the way. You will first create a project proposal to identify your goals for the project, including the question you wish to answer or explore with data. You will then find data that will provide the information you are seeking. You will then import that data into Tableau and prepare it for analysis. Next, you will create a dashboard that will allow you to explore the data in depth and identify meaningful insights. You will then give structure to your data story by writing the story arc in narrative form. Finally, you will consult your design checklist to craft the final viz or data story in Tableau. This is your opportunity to show the world what youâ??re capable of - so think big, and have confidence in your skills!

  • Develop a project proposal
  • Assess the quality of the data and perform exploratory analysis
  • Create KPIs and dashboards and assess your analysis
  • Create your data story and write a narrative to accompany your visualization

Python Data Visualization
Offered By Rice University

About this Course
This is the final course in the specialization which builds upon the knowledge learned in Python Programming Essentials, Python Data Representations, and Python Data Analysis.  We will learn how to install external packages for use within Python, acquire data from sources on the Web, and then we will clean, process, analyze, and visualize that data. This course will combine the skills learned throughout the specialization to enable you to write interesting, practical, and useful programs.

By the end of the course, you will be comfortable installing Python packages, analyzing existing data, and generating visualizations of that data.  This course will complete your education as a scripter, enabling you to locate, install, and use Python packages written by others. You will be able to effectively utilize tools and packages that are widely available to amplify your effectiveness and write useful programs.

Additional Tools Used for Data Visualization
Offered By Arizona State University

About this Course
This course will expose learners to additional tools that can be used to perform Data Visualization. In particular, the courses focuses on Tableau, a state-of-the-art visualization package. In this course, the visualization concepts from previous courses are reinforced and the Tableau software is introduced through replication of the visualizations built in previous courses.
