I have the following sentence:

Create an interactive web-based data visualization using Python.

I'm wondering what is the correct way to write this sentence in the plural, since visualization is uncountable. Is

Create interactive web-based data visualizations using Python.

correct?

What I mean is that I built some graphics using Python.

Thank you in advance for your help.

  • Why do you think visualization is uncountable?

Visualization is used in a countable sense here. The quote has "an... visualization". Nouns used with a singular article are countable.

The meaning of "a visualization" is "A visual representation of data." (wiktionary) Usually a visualisation is a graph or chart.

As a countable noun, it has a (regular) plural "visualizations".

  • Would "Create interactive web-based data visualization using Python." have been wrong?

  • That would be the uncountable sense meaning "The act of visualizing". Python may be able to import antigravity but it can't actually intialise the process of forming images in your mind! So that is a mistake.

  • Thank you. Just the last question: in this case "Created" is the more appropriate verb or can "Built" also be good?
