Assignment #7 – The Beauty of Data Visualization Reflection

What was the purpose of watching this video?
What did you learn from this talk?

After watching this video, I realized that data visualization could be a strategy that everyone should use. Data visualization simply organizes the data that is basically forcing enormous amounts of information into a small place. This video shows us that no matter much information is given to you, there will always be a strategy to organize data.  “Data is the new oil,” says David McCandless, it is the ubiquitous resource that we can shape to provide new innovations and new insights.

I learned that data visualization is equal to visual communication meaning that the collected data could be transformed in a way to communicate. As a designer,  loads of information and ideas are thrown at you and it could be overwhelming. But with data visualization, it won’t be as complicated as the information is sorted into categories.
