Abstract
This work encapsulates the stages involved in developing a data visualiser web application, CanSea. It focuses on providing a platform that would aid in an easier way to interpret data. For the development of the proposed system, requirements were gathered to ensure that user needs would be met, and that the system was achieving a purpose. Data visualisation has become an important part of human lives because, from different research papers, it is being used by different fields, including education to cut down time and increase productivity by making data easier to understand. This system was designed to be used by the Ashesi University lecturers and faculty interns, where they can upload csv files exported from Canvas, a learning management system used by the school. The results from this project suggest that the system is feasible and would make it easier to interpret raw data.
