We encounter data visualizations every day of our lives without even realizing it. The bars on the screen of your treadmill, the subway map you use to get to work, the bathroom scale you hop on to gauge your weight loss success – these are all subtle ways visualizations have crept into your life. This is probably a testament to their simplicity and effectiveness!
