In the past decade, visualization - the visual representation of information by means of graphs, charts, maps, diagrams, etc. - has become mainstream not only among scientists and researchers, but also in fields like journalism and business intelligence. This presentation is an overview of how to effectively use visualization not only to gain insights from data, but also to convey those insights to audiences.
