Data visualization is a graphical representation of reported information and data. Using visual elements like charts, graphs, maps, and other measures provides an accessible way to view and understand trends and patterns in data. Having a clear vision of these data are instrumental in making data-driven decisions.
Tableau is a program that "helps people transform data into actionable insights."
