Frequently asked questions

What is data visualization used for?

Data visualization is essential for telling stories with data in a format that is easy to understand. Nobody really enjoys looking at rows and columns of figures, for instance. But if we turn this information into a graphical representation, say a scatter plot or a bar graph, it’s much easier for people to understand the relationship between the qualities we’re representing and our findings.

Data visualizations are found in newspapers, business reports, academic studies, and in many other contexts. With data visualizations, we can condense a lot of information into a smaller area and make it accessible. Visualizations also make it easier to see patterns and differences between variables, even when a table of data or the averages may appear very similar.

Are data visualization skills in demand?

Yes. An analysis from Lightcast found a clear upward trend in job postings that mention ‘data visualization’ between 2016 and 2021.

The ability to effectively visualize data is essential for many roles, technical and non-technical, and will only become more important as businesses better utilize data.

Do I need to know Python to be good at data visualization?

No. Python is not your only option: the programming language R is also a popular choice for creating masterful data visualizations.

Additionally, if you’d like to avoid programming languages altogether, there are dedicated programs such as Tableau that can help you create powerful data visualizations. Excel and Google Sheets are also popular options that require minimal technical skill.

What are the most popular data visualization tools?

Some of the most popular data visualization tools include:

  • Python and its related packages such as Matplotlib and Seaborn
  • R, which was specifically designed for statistical analysis and data visualizations, alongside R tools such as plotly, ggplot2, and lattice
  • Power BI
  • Tableau
  • Excel and spreadsheets

DataCamp offers introductory courses for each of these popular data visualization tools, as well as courses that cover specific data visualization techniques using each technology or its packages.

Do I need to download data visualization software to learn on Datacamp?

No, we provide everything you need right in your browser. Whether you’re learning data visualization with DataCamp’s online courses in Tableau, Power BI, or Python, all you need to bring is your computer and a reliable internet connection.

If you’re taking data visualization with Tableau, you might want to download the software, but it’s not required.
