Data visualization is a method of presenting data in graphical form, to ease and to better understand the data. It is easier to figure out trends and patterns through data visualization. Few simple examples would be pie charts, bar charts, line graphs etc.
The selection of a proper visualization is one of the most important steps in the data visualization process. This selection depends on the data and the expected output. As such, it is necessary to understand the different types of visualizations that exist, to be able to choose the appropriate type. Given below are few resources that you can refer to:
