Data visualization refers to the process of enabling people understand the significance of data through visual communication. Data visualization is the easiest and most powerful way to access and digest huge amounts of data. Python 3 and Matplotlib are the most easily accessible and efficient to use programs to produce easy to read, simple to understand graphs, charts and other visual representations of data. Python is a general purpose programming language which a focus on readability and concise code, making it a great language for new coders to learn. Whereas, Matplotlib is a plotting library that works with the Python programming language and its numerical mathematics extension ‘NumPy’.

Many people have started to realize the significance of analyzing huge amounts of data. However, the majority of people lack the skills and the time needed to understand this data in its original form. Therefore, this course in Data visualization with Python and Matplotlib will help you learn how data visualization allows you to create easy to read, simple to understand graphs, charts and other visual representations of data. This course could be that added qualification that helps you land an ideal job in the IT or programming field. You could also use this course to improve your knowledge and to progress further in your career. This course covers every major chart that Matplotlib is capable of providing. You will be taught on the basic functions like labels, titles, window buttons and legends, the most popular types of graph and how to import data from both a CSV and NumPy. This course will also help you master the more advanced features like customized spines, styles, annotations, averages and indicators, geographical plotting with Basemap and advanced wireframes.
