Data visualization is the graphic representation of data. It involves producing images that communicate relationships among the represented data to viewers of the images.

This communication is achieved through the use of a systematic mapping between graphic marks and data values in the creation of the visualization. We need data visualization because a visual summary of information makes it easier to identify patterns and trends than looking through thousands of rows on a spreadsheet.
