|Dr. Sukanya explaining the finer aspects of Data Visualisation in R|
Data visualization principles help to communicate data-driven findings in a better way. Open source software R has various packages for data visualization like ggplot2, tidyverse etc. The session focused on the basics of data visualization by exploring grouping the data sets using different parameters, sorting datasets, adding derived columns to data sets and representing the data through histogram, boxplots, density curves to bring out the inherent characteristics of the data. The different packages and datasets like NHANES, gapminder were demonstrated.
|Dr. Shobana from Alliance Engineering gave a top class presentation on Python|
This will be followed up soon by sessions soon to discuss detailed aspects of Data Visualisation using R and Python separately.
The effort put up by both the faculty members in sparing their time to read, think and do a presentation on Data Visualisation has not only improved their professional competence a great deal, it has made them competent and confident to engage serious sessions for senior students both in the Engineering and Business schools.
The impact on the audience in getting exposed to a highly important and emergent area of Data Analytics , ie., Data Visualisation was an added bonus.
Looking forward to more such presentations in cutting edge areas in future.
