Data visualisation is the graphical representation of information and data. With visual elements like charts, graphs and maps, data visualisation tools provide an accessible way to see and understand trends, outliers and patterns in data.

In the world of big data, data visualisation tools and technologies are essential for analysing massive amounts of information and making data-driven decisions. Our culture is visual, including everything from art and advertisements to TV and films, and our eyes are drawn to colours and patterns. Our interaction with data should reflect this reality.

Make your data better

This visualisation shows San Francisco Airbnb listings data on a map. Because all of the listings are the same size and colour, even with filters, it’s hard to differentiate the value between the listings at a glance.

Take your viz from good to great with just a few tweaks.

Explore your data with a purpose

Data visualisation is a form of visual art that grabs our interest and keeps our eyes on the message. When we see a chart, we quickly see trends and outliers.


If we can see something, we internalise it quickly. If you’ve ever stared at a massive spreadsheet of data and couldn’t see a trend, you know how much more effective a visualisation can be.
