Data Visualisation is the art of displaying data in a clear and understandable way that allows for maximum impact. By following GSS guidelines for best practice, you can ensure that your visualisations are consistent with each other, improving readability and professionalism.

These courses are parallel courses explaining how to take the GSS guidelines and practically apply it using the programming languages of R and Python. They will take you from first principles through to producing production ready visualisation.
