The Primary Purpose of Data Visualization

Data Visualization is not about seeing the numbers. It is about seeing patterns.

I have seen many organizations clutter their chart with numbers and missed the pattern altogether.

In the charts taken from a utility bill, it only showed the consumption over the months and the average against neighbours as well as the national average. That's what data visualization is designed to do.

Remember not to ask your staff to add this number and that number and comments into the chart.
