Background: As noted by Kirk (2016), working with data is one of the four stages of the visualization workflow. According to Kirk (2016), “A dataset is a collection of data values upon which visualization is based.” In this course, we will be using datasets that have already been collected for us. Data can be collected through various collection techniques.
