Product is rated as #127 in category Data Science

“A picture is worth a thousand words”. We are all familiar with this expression. It especially applies when trying to explain the insight obtained from the analysis of increasingly large datasets. Data visualization plays an essential role in the representation of both small and large–scale data. One of the key skills of a data scientist is the ability to tell a compelling story, visualizing data and findings in an approachable and stimulating way. Learning how to leverage a software tool to visualize data will also enable you to extract information, better understand the data, and make more effective decisions. The main goal of this Data Visualization with Python course is to teach you how to take data that at first glance has little meaning and present that data in a form that makes sense to people. Various techniques have been developed for presenting data visually but in this course, we will be using several data visualization libraries in Python, namely Matplotlib, Seaborn, and Folium. LIMITED TIME OFFER: Subscription is only $39 USD per month for access to graded materials and a certificate. IBM offers a wide range of technology and consulting services; a broad portfolio of middleware for collaboration, predictive analytics, software …

    The information was valuable and generally well explained. The final was a massive failure; the classes and examples prepare us for maybe half of the questions, but all the questions depend on building off each other. The only way to pass is to Google for hours.

    not too practical over the course, a lot of theory based which is great as well. But I personally not a big fan of the Watson studio as it’s not user friendly. I have to go through a lot of layer on their site before getting to the studio or the notebook.

    Since students weren’t able to submit code, this made it extremely difficult to answer the final project (which I couldn’t figure out how to finish). Getting feed back on how to correctly code the answers is more important than showing a screenshot of the final product.

    Links did not work for classes hands on exercises, repetitive video explanations, and final project required content that was not explained in classes. Overall, it was a bad experience on a subject that should have received more thought and caring from instructors on lesson plans and class materials given its importance.

    This course has one advantage over the others in the series: practice time. The labs are more thorough and provide more practice problems. However, the overall quality in production of this course is lower than the others. Additionally, there were some points awarded on the final project for things simply not covered in the lectures or labs, which was frustrating to say the least.

    I have mixed feeling about this course. I think the purpose of this course (visualizing data) and the different ways of doing it is really motivating and awesome, specially when you realize all the things you can do (types of charts , maps etc…). This is actually awesome! However, on the down sides: Each video repeats the steps on how the database used in each course has been “cleaned”. I agree with the feedback from other people, reminding us one or two times is fine, but in each video… This is too much! I would have liked more practical exercises, specially to plot multiple linear regression models (and polynomial of different degrees, in particular), to display on a chart, and to make predictions. That would be great ! Labs: they are of unequal difficulty: some are relatively easy to complete, some require more thinking/research and time, while some have no question at all or very little. Maybe it would be useful to re organize the labs ?… Week 3: as everyone mentions, the “artist layer” method is only briefly covered in one of the lab. It would have be really useful to spend more time on it, and on all the things we do with it. Like others, I spent lot of time searching online, and it took me a full afternoon to complete that part of the final assignment ! To summarize: it’s a very important and interesting course, but video lessons should be re recorded with deleting all parts repeating the initial database processing, and adding more topics such as artist layers, etc. Also, maybe split each lab in 2 since there are few labs in this course, but if we follow them correctly, it requires quite few hours to spend on each lab (at least for “beginners” like us starting learning about this topic). Thank You !

    Out of all the courses in the IBM Data Science Professional Certificate, this was the one I had the highest expectation for and unfortunately I was a bit disappointed. The course materials are lacking in information and the final assignment asks for customisations that weren’t covered in the course materials, which leads to question: are these important things to know and the materials are lacking in information ? Or are these irrelevant and should be a part of the final assignment? Because if they’re just there to make sure no one gets a 100% grade, then that’s just sad.

    This course was good but for too many of the final assignment questions I really had a to look up how to do it on the web. A better explanation of the key on parameter in choropleths would help even though the entry in the json file is features the key on value is feature.properties. not features.properties..

    This course felt less well organized and structured as compared to the other courses in the IBM Data Science track. The videos were sparse on detail, and while the labs did have a lot of good information, they were missing crucial material that was necessary for the final assignment. The final assignment also didn’t include a Jupyter notebook template / starter code, which combined with the missing information from the labs made the assignment much more frustrating than those for the other courses in this series.

    Better to read matplotlib and folium documentation and look for answers from stackoverflow. This course didn’t offer enough components of matplotlib and folium. This offers lab sessions but they are not main contents. Final assignments are impossible for someone who just takes only this course.

    I feel this is harder than the other ones in the series, sometimes you need to google a little bit to figure it out. I spend more time for a week, but I wonder why I have to do it in Python. I learn Python just for faster loops than R. Personally I think R need less coding and produce better graphs.

    The subject matter of this class was very enjoyable. However, the level of presentation of the material was not in depth enough . As a person who is not from a computer science background, this class was extremely challenging; not because it was too difficult per se, but because I was not given the tools needed to be able to confidently complete the Final Assignment. It took many days of researching, watching several videos outside of the Coursera platform, and a lot of trial and error, to be able to complete the course. In addition, the labs had trouble loading (not Coursera’s fault, as it was through another site) quite a lot, which hindered my progression.

    The content of courses are great! Went through step by step until a high technical level. Unfortunately, the lab is always out of server, me and others users have been reported the same problems every now and then and nothing changed. I finished the course without practice the labs and I can’t check the exercises to start an own project! Apart from that the whole course is worthwhile.
