The Keys to Visualizing Big Data

Co.Design logo

We all live in a world saturated with big data…almost everyone, whether in business, government, education or just as our everyday consumer selves, make use of big data to help us make better decisions, from what next year’s IT capital budget should be to how confident we are in scheduling that al fresco dinner next weekend.

The ability to visualize big and complex data, making it somewhat comprehensible to the human mind, has played a key, and often underappreciated, role in bringing the benefits of big data to both the masses as well as the individual. I invite you to read, “What Killed the Infographic?”, a fascinating article from Fast Company’s Co.Design on the evolution of data visualization and what the future holds.

Hints:  Simpler, Focused and Mobile.
