Data Visualisation is a key tool in a any researcher’s toolbox nowadays. But since graphic methods were first designed and then revisited with the introduction of computers, we kind of stopped questioning data visualisation in terms of the real value that’s adding to our research and our ability to produce new knowledge.

Now with Big Data and the Real-Time web we are entering a whole new phase in the history of data Visualisation. New challenges lie ahead and new methods are being devised, so we felt compelled to look into it again to try and focus on how exactly data visualisation really helps us make sense of complexity.

Fresh from our presentation at BigDataWeek London last night, here’s a quick intro to the 10 reasons why we like visualising data.
