Deliver Data Visualizations clearly, effectively and impactfully!

Data visualization is nothing new. In fact, you may have been already doing it except that you are unaware of it and unaware of its potential positive impact on related stakeholders.

Data visualization is the visual or pictorial representation of data. Often thought of solely as graphic presentation, data visualization encompasses visual summaries of information that span pictures, diagrams, charts, and maps alike.

Within the evolving data science field, data visualization is recognized as the process of displaying data to provide insights that will support better decisions; that is, telling the story behind the data.

Owing to better exposure to software advances, data visualization with storytelling have progressed to improve the way data points are being processed, organized and displayed for stakeholders.

Having a good or clearer understanding on data visualization and storytelling will not only help you to be more productive and also for your workplace progress and advancement.

Daniel's lessons were well-paced. He was also able to provide rather recent examples to substantiate his narrative. I would recommend him to others who are interested in understanding more about data visualisation.
