Computational Skills for Researchers: Data Visualization with Python
Instructor: Christina Maimone, Senior Computational Social Sciences Specialist, Northwestern IT Research Computing Services
Are you using Python to analyze data? Then learn how to visualize it with the matplotlib plotting library. The pandas data analysis library has built-in support for matplotlib, but matplotlib works with other analysis libraries and data structures too. We'll work through examples of several different types of plots, learn how to change styles and options, and talk about resources for learning to create professional plots on your own. This workshop assumes you're comfortable writing at least basic Python code. Please bring your own laptop; installation instructions will be provided ahead of the workshop.
