Data visualization is defined as the visual representation of data. Many researchers use data visualization to better understand their data and to present it in a clear and effective manner to people who are unfamiliar with the data. Using data visualization for statistical and quantitative data can serve to communicate the findings of a particular research study more effectively. Examples of data visualization are mind maps, data graphics, and infographics.
