Grad Success Week 2018 - Spatial Data Visualization

Why Spatial Data?

... because most data can be associated with a place!

Including the dimension of place:

  • Adds context/emphasizes a point
  • Leads to further insight
    • Patterns, trends, and correlation (or the opposite) are made more apparent
    • Supports conclusions
    • Aid in decision making
    • Prompts additional investigation
  • Better understanding of complex data
    • Communicating results and messages in a more digestible manner and in an engaging way
