“Why do we need to understand data visualizations? There is more and more data around us, and data are increasingly used in decision-making, journalism, and to make sense of the world. One of the main ways that people get access to data is through visualizations, but lots of people feel like they don’t have the skills and knowledge to make sense of visualizations. This can mean that some people feel left out of conversations about data.” – http://seeingdata.org/developing-visualisation-literacy/
