There is an increased recognition that effectively visualizing data is important to anyone who works with and analyzes data. To that end, there has been an explosion in data analysis and data visualization tools over the past few years. For many people, however, Microsoft Excel continues to the be the workhorse for their data visualization needs. If you are an Excel user, the default chart types in do not need to limit your data visualization capabilities; extending the tool to create other chart types is indeed possible.
In this step-by-step guide to data visualization in Excel, you will learn how to create more than 15 new advanced graphs in Excel 2010 (on PCs) and Excel 2011 (on Macs). Each tutorial will lead you through the steps to create each chart type (instructions and images use the 2010 version of Excel, but are nearly identical on the Mac). Some basic, working knowledge of Excel, how to create basic graphs, adding different data series, and combining graph types will be useful. Along with this guide you will also receive an Excel file template that you can use to recreate the graphs on your own or to use as templates for your own work.
