What is Data Visualization ?
Data visualization is a general term that describes any effort to help people understand the significance of data by placing it in a visual context. Patterns, trends and correlations that might go undetected in text-based data can be exposed and recognized easier with data visualization software.
Why Data Visualization ?
A primary goal of data visualization is to communicate information clearly and efficiently via statistical graphics, plots and information graphics. Numerical data may be encoded using dots, lines, or bars, to visually communicate a quantitative message. Effective visualization helps users analyze and reason about data and evidence. It makes complex data more accessible, understandable and usable. Users may have particular analytical tasks, such as making comparisons or understanding causality, and the design principle of the graphic (i.e., showing comparisons or showing causality) follows the task. Tables are generally used where users will look up a specific measurement, while charts of various types are used to show patterns or relationships in the data for one or more variables.
Data visualization is both an art and a science. It is viewed as a branch of descriptive statistics by some, but also as a grounded theory development tool by others. The rate at which data is generated has increased. Data created by internet activity and an expanding number of sensors in the environment, such as satellites, are referred to as "Big Data". Processing, analyzing and communicating this data present a variety of ethical and analytical challenges for data visualization. The field of data science and practitioners called data scientists have emerged to help address this challenge.
Because of the way the human brain processes information, using charts or graphs to visualize large amounts of complex data is easier than poring over spreadsheets or reports. Data visualization is a quick, easy way to convey concepts in a universal manner – and you can experiment with different scenarios by making slight adjustments.
Data visualization can also:
- Identify areas that need attention or improvement.
- Clarify which factors influence customer behavior.
- Help you understand which products to place where.
- Predict sales volumes.
Unicom Shall be Organising 1 day Event on Data Visualization on March 03 in Singapore. This event is desgined after lot of research, advise from industry experts and voice of customer.
This event will bring together industry professionals and thought leaders from the field of Data Visualization. It will help you in understanding and implementing data visualization in your business/for your client . It will also provide an excellent opportunity to interact and network with some of the top minds.
I have 15 years data analytics & business intelligence exposure in technology, digital marketing, online and banking industries. A self professed tech geek, an eFitness enthusiast and an avid fan of healthy food, I spend weekends running, reading & then writing articles, while pursuing big data, and business analytics courses via SMU, & MITXL, when I am not working at my day job transforming digital analytics & enabling smart visual data decisions in SG based global bank.
Working in the realm of strategic planning and development in the geospatial industry for more than a decade, I enjoy playing a frontline role in a global movement that is transforming the way government organizations and businesses are adopting latest technologies to deliver ingenious and innovative solutions to complex organisational challenges.
As Chief Technology Strategist for the nation’s leading GIS solutions provider – Esri Singapore – my role is focussed on identifying core technology and solutions of strategic importance to the development of the geospatial community. I have worked with a large variety of government, private and not-for-profit organisations across a broad cross-section of industries to deliver innovative blueprints that maximise their GIS investment and deliver measurable results.
My passion for GIS technology fuels my commitment to promoting spatial literacy amongst professionals within the nation.Feel free to connect with me to if you would like to discuss potential opportunities to work with or leverage Esri’s cutting edge ArcGIS platform.

This will be an interactive session where participants will join a table to discuss the round table topic. Each table has a "Topic Guru" to facilitate the discussion.
Visualization is more than being pretty, as it takes from transforming data into visual representation to derive actionable insights. What would be better than using graphs to transform and visualize your data in a graphical network and extracting valuable insights from it. Tables alone are definitely insufficient to provide a good summary on a particular data; and moreover tables are incapable to immediately identify associations or patterns within the data. I will highlight a combination of strategies from text analytics and visualization to extract insights from unstructured data.
