Data visualization aids the analysis and interpretation of data by placing it in a visual context using patterns, trends, and correlations. Data visualization is an interdisciplinary field that deals with the graphic representation of data. It is an efficient way of communicating when your data is numerous. Data visualization uses visual elements like charts, graphs, and maps, to provide an accessible way to see and understand trends, outliers, and patterns.
