Explore Data Visualization

Journalists and social commentators are increasingly using infographs and data visualization to express trends, relationships, and to make sense of the abundance of available data. Infographics are familiar visual representations and illustrations of single variables measured across time or location. Data visualizations often express more complex relationships within larger data sets.
