Description

Learn the methods you need to bring data to life through effective visualizations. In this video course, host Jefrey Heerco-founder of Trifactatakes you through best practices for designing interactive visualizations, performing exploratory data analysis, and examining multidimensional data.Youll begin by learning the value of visualization, through design principles drawn from graphic design, visual art, perceptual psychology, and cognitive science. Using Trifactas data transformation tools to illustrate some of the concepts, youll also learn techniques for scaling visualizations to extremely large data sets.In two partsEffective Visualization Design and Visualizing Big Datathis course will teach you practical tips on topics including:Visualization design fundamentals: data and image models, graphical perception, and color designVisual data analysis and exploration: exploratory data analysis, multidimensional data, interaction techniquesData reduction strategies: sampling, aggregation, and model fittingEffective visualization of big data: scalable visual encoding methods and interaction techniquesJefrey Heer is a co-founder and CXO (Chief Experience Officer) at Trifacta Inc.
