what is data visualization?

Ever wondered how much is a million dollars? or how big is an acre? Or what is the biggest contributor to global waste in the world?

The answer to most of these questions is a large set of numbers and sheets of ample data. I don't know about you, but that just makes my head spin.
Data visualization helps break down complex data into smaller chunks often with the help of design and visuals. Thus helping you absorb large sets of data using multiple senses.

I believe that with access to so much data at our fingertips, it is now time to make this information accessible and understandable. After all, knowledge is power.
