Why Should You Care About Data Visualization?

I maintain that one of the least utilized tools in the e-activist’s toolbox is creative use of data visualization.

How much difference can it make? Here’s an example:

  • This is data.
  • This is the same data, coupled with skillful visualization.

See the difference?

Now ask yourself what data your organization works with every day. Are there ways you could be using visualization to make turn it from dry data to a compelling presentation?
