Visualizing Data: Charts and Graphs for the Web

Class Description

Information graphics are powerful tools for showing trends and figures. If you're a communicator of any kind, you need to know how to visualize data in a way that's understandable and meaningful.

In this class, you'll learn how to use Adobe Illustrator to create clean, engaging charts and graphs for the web. No previous experience with Illustrator is required! We'll walk through getting good data, using Illustrator's charting tool, styling with colors and fonts, and finally, sharing your visualization on the web.

Project Title

Your City in Three Charts

Project Description

For your final project, you'll create three charts that offer a snapshot of your hometown. You'll use data from the U.S. Census Bureau to make:

  • A horizontal bar chart that compares three or more groups.
  • A line chart to show change over time (with at least four data points).
  • A pie chart to show the composition of a group (3-6 subgroups).
