Data Visualization is the process of searching, interpreting and comparing data that allows to acquire in-depth knowledge. To convey this knowledge to the user, the information must be organized in a way in which it can be easily understood. Dashboards are created to give clarity to the figures and statistics being visualized. The benefits that come from communicating the meaning hidden behind those numbers are such that this modality of visualizing the so-called Big Data has become popular in the media and is frequently employed by financial entities, private initiatives or centers of scientific research etc.

Data visualization is the final task that makes worthwhile the lengthy process of data collection and processing.
