What is Data Visualization and Why is it Necessary?

Data visualization is a catchphrase these days, but all it really means is attempting to make data pretty to look at. More than looks, though, visual data lets us see and understand trends and information much more quickly and easily.

There are a lot of options for data visualization. In fact, you’ve probably seen a lot of these in the form of infographics and map-based visualizations. Data visualization for big data can include charts, maps, graphs, and whatever other forms allow for data digestion.

Data visualization is essential to understanding trends, predicting events, recognizing patterns, and analyzing large amounts of data. Instead of pouring over hundreds of pages of text-based data and trying to make sense of it all, visual data allows us to immediately view and comprehend millions of data points.

We know how important it is to be able to visually interpret data. That’s why our platform, Pushgraph, allows users to choose the data visualizations that you need to understand all of the data points you’re reviewing. You can learn more about our visual analytics on our website:
