Mind Mapping and Data Visualization

Data visualization. Data visualization or data visualisation is viewed by many disciplines as a modern equivalent of visual communication.

Data visualization

It is not owned by any one field, but rather finds interpretation across many (e.g. it is viewed as a modern branch of descriptive statistics by some, but also as a grounded theory development tool by others). It involves the creation and study of the visual representation of data, meaning "information that has been abstracted in some schematic form, including attributes or variables for the units of information".[1] A primary goal of data visualization is to communicate information clearly and efficiently to users via the information graphics selected, such as tables and charts. Effective visualization helps users in analyzing and reasoning about data and evidence. It makes complex data more accessible, understandable and usable.

Mind Mapping

For the geographical concept, see Mental mapping. Hand-drawn and computer-drawn variations of a mind map. A mind map is a diagram used to visually organize information. A mind map is often created around a single concept, drawn as an image in the center of a blank landscape page, to which associated representations of ideas such as images, words and parts of words are added. Major ideas are connected directly to the central concept, and other ideas branch out from those. Mind maps can be drawn by hand, either as "rough notes" during a lecture, meeting or planning session, for example, or as higher quality pictures when more time is available. Mind maps are considered to be a type of spider diagram.[1] A similar concept in the 1970s was "idea sun bursting".[2] Origins[edit] The semantic network was developed in the late 1950s as a theory to understand human learning and developed further by Allan M.
