We live in a data-driven world. From website performance to consumer behavior, data measures and tracks changes, highlights successes and failures, and ultimately drives decision making. And thanks to the Internet of Things (IoT), the amount of worldwide data will only continue to grow. However, raw data is rarely glamourous, and to the average person is complex, unengaging, and difficult to decipher.

In other words, instead of presenting data as simple text or in a basic grid, organizations can use data visualization tools to display data in the form of a chart, graph, or other visual element. Common data visualization graphics include, but are not limited to:
Interactive data visualization refers to visualization graphics like those above. However, the difference is that users can interact with them. Examples of interactive elements include buttons users can push or bars they can drag to explore how different variables affect data results. Organizations like interactive data visualization because of the added insights and value it delivers.
Make no mistake. Data visualization is not just about making data pretty. It’s about presenting data in
