Data visualizations are representations of data in pictorial or graphical format. Sometimes we draw a simple line graph, like the graph of global surface temperature; sometimes, we use maps, like the high-temperature map for the United States for June 15, 2018. Other types of visualization include bar graphs, scatter plots, pie charts, bubble charts, heatmaps, treemaps, cloropleth maps, sankey diagrams, and more. Even art can visualize data.
