Path overview

Data visualization is a critical skill for any data professional. Since people can’t process vast amounts of raw data, we rely on graphs, charts, and tables to help us turn data into something useful.

In this skill path, you’ll learn how to use R programming and ggplot2 to create meaningful data visualizations.

Ggplot2, which is a part of tidyverse, is an R package for data visualization. It’s one of the most versatile and easy-to-use tools for creating elegant graphics using R, and it’s the main focus of this path.

  • Learn the basics of ggplot2 for exploratory and explanatory data visualization
  • Gain experience in manipulating, comparing, and presenting compelling and actionable data
  • Discover the best methods for visualizing data using line graphs, histograms, bar charts, scatter plots, and more
