Data visualizations are graphical representations of data and information. By using visual components like charts, diagrams, and maps, data visualization tools provide an approachable way to recognize and explore trends, outliers, and patterns in data.
Every day, we produce 2.5 quintillion bytes of data. In other words, the volume of data is growing at a mind-blowing pace. If we want to continue to comprehend such large amounts of data, we must make it as simple as possible to receive that information. Data visualizations make big and small amounts of data more accessible for the human brain to understand.
