Visualization [Harvard/Python/D3]

Visualization [Harvard/Python/D3]

From the webpage:

The amount and complexity of information produced in science, engineering, business, and everyday human activity is increasing at staggering rates. The goal of this course is to expose you to visual representation methods and techniques that increase the understanding of complex data. Good visualizations not only present a visual interpretation of data, but do so by improving comprehension, communication, and decision making.

In this course you will learn how the human visual system processes and perceives images, good design practices for visualization, tools for visualization of data from a variety of fields, collecting data from web sites with Python, and programming of interactive web-based visualizations using D3.

Twenty-two (22) lectures, nine (9) labs (for some unknown reason, “lab” becomes “section”) and three (3) bonus videos.

Just as a sample, I tried Lab 3 Sketching Workshop I.

I don’t know that I will learn how to draw a straight line but if I don’t, it won’t be the fault of the instructor!

This looks very good.

I first saw this in a tweet by Christophe Viau.
