Data visualisations such as graphs and maps are a powerful way to communicate and tell stories with data. They can easily be created by spreadsheet software and online services, although following a few basic rules and guidelines can lead to much better results.

This one-hour course will cover the first things you need to know:

· How to create simple graphs within spreadsheet software

· The rules on what kinds of graph to use for specific types of data (such as when not to use a line graph)

· Going further with specialist online services such as Datawrapper

Some of the techniques will be demonstrated within Google Sheets (if you have a Google account, you probably already have this at and there will be the opportunity to try them during the session, but this isn’t required.


This is an Online course, run on the Zoom platform. Please note our courses are not recorded. See our full terms and conditions at for more information about our booking procedures, cancellation policy and more.
