Data visualisation

Data visualisation

Half of the human brain is dedicated to processing things visually. Visualising information helps people to make sense of concepts and relationships and disentangle the complex world they live in.

As a result, effective visualisations can contribute to a significantly better understanding of data as well as policies. They can achieve a considerably higher impact on policy-makers and citizens and contribute to considerably higher political support.
