What are the benefits?
By attending this course, you will learn how to create powerful data visualisations using R and RStudio.
You will practice creating RStudio projects and writing and running your own R scripts. You will get hands-on experience creating visualisations like scatter plots, boxplots, histograms, time series plots, static and interactive maps.
