This course will get you familiar with the building blocks of Altair visualizations and some of the important chart settings. You will touch upon some of the fundamentals of plotting graphs in Altair. You'll start off by learning about the basic data structures that can form the basis of Altair visualizations, including JSON data and Pandas DataFrames in both wide-form and long-form. You'll then move on to plotting one of the simpler graphs, histograms, to visualize the distribution of values for a quantitative field in your dataset. While doing so, you'll get to explore the different ways in which Altair graphs can be customized including augmenting your chart with text, layering histograms to view two distributions together, and making histograms interactive.
