Posted by Emma Paz on Jul 22, 2016 3:07:07 PM


Data visualization is a modern form of communications that involves the study and creation of visual representations of large data streams often known as big data. Visualizing data is a powerful tool across many industries and disciplines and is often done with tools like ArcGIS, capable of turning almost any form of data into a geographical point ready to be mapped. If you have yet to unlock the power of big data in your company or organization and leverage it through maps and other means of data visualization, it’s time to get caught up with the technology quickly becoming taken for granted in various fields. It is being used in various administrative settings around the world from city planning to shipping and logistics and even marketing and sales.
