Book Description

Companies, non-profit organizations, and governments are collecting a large amount of data. Analysts and graphic designers are faced with a challenge of conveying data to a wide audience. This book introduces Circos, a creative program to display tables in an engaging visualization.

Readers will learn how to install, create, and customize Circos diagrams using real-life examples from the social sciences.

"Circos Data Visualization How-to" is a friendly, hands-on guide to creating diagrams with step-by-step instructions. Although Circos was originally created for genetic research, this book emphasizes using Circos in the social sciences. We will walk through the process to install, create, and customize diagrams.

The book provides step-by-step instructions to installing Circos on your computer, transforming data sets to use in Circos, and creating diagrams in the social sciences.

You will learn how to transform ordinary tables into engaging diagrams. We will walk through the installation process on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS. We will also learn how to transform raw data into a Circos-friendly format. The book is written as a friendly, hands-on guide so new users can walk through the installation and diagram-creation process.

Readers will understand how to create Circos diagrams, from organizing data through to creating diagrams.
