Data visualization has become increasingly popular over the last few years. Many tools nowadays include some kind of data visualization which gives you insight in usage, the best possible way to travel, the best product offering, etc. Data visualization seems to be a powerful solution for summarising information in a world where the amount of information targeted towards us is increasing every day. But is this the holy grail for processing information? What new possibilities does visualising data provide us? What is the best possible way to present and interact with these data visualizations?
