Data visualisation is the art of displaying data in a clear, understandable and effective way. By following Government Statistical Service (GSS) guidelines for best practice, you can ensure that your visualisations are consistent with each other. This will help you improve the readability and professionalism of your work.

There are two courses, one using R and the other using Python. The courses explain how to take the GSS guidelines and practically apply them using the programming languages of R and Python. The courses will take you from first principles through to creating production ready visualisation.

On this course you will learn how to:

  • plot basic visualisations
  • understand GSS guidelines to customise plots
