This course introduces you to the use of Altair visualizations which can convey very detailed information for specialized datasets. You will cover some of the graphs that can be used to convey the information in very specific kinds of datasets, while also giving you some hands-on experience with advanced chart configurations. You'll begin by plotting information on a map, both to mark locations of places as well as to convey numerical information about regions. You'll then build a heatmap to analyze the numbers associated with a combination of two categorical variables. Next, you'll implement candlestick charts to visualize stock price movements, dot plots to analyze the range of movement for some values, and Gantt charts to view a project plan. Finally, you'll explore the use of window functions to analyze the top K elements in each category of your dataset.
