About

Whether you’re pitching a new idea, persuading others to take action, building a strategy, or making a decision, data is key. The Data Visualization - Communicating Data and Complex Ideas Visually programme is offered at the Harvard University.

Overview

Key facts:

  • But the amount of information available today is staggering, and it’s easy to become overwhelmed by too many statistics, distracted by the wrong set of numbers, and confused by the complexity of data.
  • The Data Visualization - Communicating Data and Complex Ideas Visually program at the Harvard University combines the science of data visualization with the art of graphic design to help you communicate complex information more accurately and effectively. By transforming data sets into visual graphics—such as charts, bar graphs, scatterplots, and heatmaps—you will learn to present complex data in ways your audience can better understand. Through hands-on exercises, you’ll explore the many types of data in use today, learn how people perceive different graphical displays, and create visual presentations that make a stronger impact on your audience.
