Background: As noted by Kirk (2019),  working with data, is one of the four stages of the visualization workflow.  According to Kirk (2019), “A dataset is a collection of data values upon which a visualization is based.” In this course, we will be using datasets that have already been collected for us – some cleaning has been done also. Data can be collected by various collection techniques.
