What, Why and How to Do It Well
What is Information Visualization

Information visualization or information visualization is the study of (interactive) visual representations of abstract data to reinforce human cognition.

Why to Conduct Information Visualization
The importance of visualization in conveying information is undeniable. For example, the rise and fall of a certain indicator is viewed and understood faster by examining the corresponding line graph than looking at the raw numbers.
We are now in the Information Age. Every day we need to deal with vast amounts of data and disseminate them through many channels of telecommunication. In order to process the vast amount of data, we rely on the power of visualization. With diagrams we are able to gain insight in the data, by detecting patterns and trends and are able to check and verify the data.
