Learning Python Data Visualization

Video Description

Learn to visualize data for real-world solutions using Python and its popular libraries for effective data analysis.

About This Video

  • Utilize the Python development environment that works best for you using different data types and collections for data analysis
  • Explore how to analyze data using Python with different data visualizing techniques
  • Apply data visualization techniques on several types of dataset and other packages used for visual representation

In Detail

This video course is a beginner’s introduction to data visualization, and the techniques and libraries which can be leveraged with the Python language to achieve this. The end goal is to teach analysts and data scientists how they can visually represent complex sets of data using Python.

The video course introduces visualization concepts so viewers can analyze large and small sets of data using libraries such as Matplotlib, IPython, and so on.

This course primarily employs the IPython environment and matplotlib, with the following structure:

  • Introduce key data visualization libraries (matplotlib and so on.) and cover data importing/exporting (CSV, Excel, JSON and so on).
  • Introduce real-world data sets (to be visualized in the video).
  • Visualization types/techniques (bar chart, histogram, scatter plot, geospatial, and so on); demonstrate how to customize visualizations.
  • Introduce intermediate topics to create more advanced visualizations and using complex techniques, such as real-time data visualization.

By the end of the course, you will be able to demonstrate visualizations with interesting, real-world data sets.
