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.

One of the biggest constraints of geographic visualization is the geography itself. Though New York City has over 10 times as many people as Alaska, it is only afforded a tiny speck on the map.
Finding and generating map shapes themselves are a problem. Where can we find the map of PIN codes in India? Or a shape file covering polling booth areas? How about a floor plan of a plant? Is it possible to create such maps?
Using such maps is yet another issue. Tools to manipulate maps are not as ubiquitous as, say, Excel.
This talk explains different kinds of geographic representations, how one can create new maps, and how to represent information on these maps

Data visualization is an important aspect of artificial intelligence, machine learning and data science. There are two reasons why it is important; first, it is a way to communicate information which can be easily consumed by human brains. As human beings can remember visual display longer than numerical display. colors in visualization also makes a huge difference in our minds, hence we can remember things for a longer period of time than absolute black and white numbers. second: it brings impact. it is a great tool summarize. you can explain one hypothesis by mathematical equations or formulas or can explain in languages which may take few paragraphs, but instead if the information can be represented in a single graph that is much more impact full. in this conference i will be speaking about few use cases of representing information in visual form to make sense out of data.

Many industries today are leading the way forward in data analytics, which are disrupting and revolutionising new capabilities in Machine Learning and AI. Providing real-time analysis is no longer a costly endeavour and businesses today are keen to have a real-time view of their organisation to better operations, providing better and enhanced customer experience and increasing sales through identifying key patterns.
Traditional data visualisation in business is viewed as operating at two ends of the spectrum, whether to create explanations for the users - a narrative or to create explorations for the users - a dashboard. However, the ideal role of data visualisation should be to help the user develop a better intuitive understanding of the business system to enable decision making. Hence, we need to start thinking about data visualisation as a medium to help uncover the underlying system. We need to start bridging the gap between explanation and exploration - and start thinking about Explorable Explanations. In this talk, I will explore this concept of Explorable Explanation, the current paradigms in which it works (through examples), the challenges in building this and examine the possibility of bringing this to the business domain.Speaker Profile

Data Visualization sits at the core of delivering effective, insightful and actionable business analytics. While leaders in enterprise business analytics, technologies do a great job at providing a robust, scalable and efficient system to process data and create complex reporting, supporting the latest of visualization options, but we keep encountering businesses failing to create compelling stories with data at their disposal.
One of the premier reasons lies with the engagement model for Data Visualization while doing a BI project. Often people with business acumen and technology expertise discuss and pave way forward for the applications design and development, with Data Visualization being an afterthought. What works best instead is a robust data visualization strategy for your BI project up ahead, enabling the business not only to become best equipped to handle business needs, but also to best project the data in the most insightful and actionable format, which developers or business analyst miss a lot of times.
In this session you will learn:
• Learning's from over 100s of BI projects we have delivered working closely with Data Visualization expert right from the initiation of the project engagement, and what works best for the customers
• What requisite data visualization skills to the DV roles needed in the team, from various approaches at project stages to visualization strategy for BI projects
• What is the Role of a Data Visualization Expert in while delivering a BI Dashboard/ Mobile App project?
• When and how to engage a Data Visualization expert in Dashboard / Mobile BI app development project?

Today's businesses have access to a vast amount of data generated from both inside and outside the enterprise. To make sense of all this data we need to augment existing/traditional analytics with visual analytics so that decision makers are able to spot hidden data patterns, trends and correlations in their myriad data sets and turn them into actionable insights. Data Visualization is the art that makes this science possible.
In this session, we’ll learn about Data Visualization and how to use it to craft compelling visual data stories that makes complex ideas engaging, meaningful, and easy to understand. You’ll also gain a fair understanding on what it takes to build a visual analytics strategy for your organization and how to sell it to your business.
