Have you ever seen a scientific graph that you would like to have in your own dissertation but just haven't been able to reproduce it? In this course, we will teach you how to prepare beautiful scientific plots and graphs. A drawing that you can directly use in your thesis with the proper size, colours, resolution, axis & legend descriptions…. We will guide you through the most common scientific graphs, charts and plots (boxplots, scatterplots, heatmaps, polarplots, maps and many more…).
