Data visualizations allow you to see the concepts that you’re learning about in a more interesting way. The information is abstracted in some schematic form. There are many different ways to do this, see Dataviz for some examples. Also called Infographics, data visualisations allow you to see patterns and connections in data (or numbers) that tells a story by representing them using maps or landscapes.
