Module overview

Data visualisation is the process of summarising and communicating the information in a dataset through graphics. This course examines what makes good visualisations, and how this depends on the audience and purpose of the visualisation and the type of data being displayed. The link between good graphics and an understanding of human perceptual and information-processing capacities are discussed. These principles are put into practice by using the R programming language to construct and deploy high quality visualisations.
