Visualize Data

“A picture is worth 1,000 words.”

You know the phrase. It’s the belief that an idea, story, or concept can be explained or conveyed with one single image. You’ve probably heard or used it in conversation yourself more times than you could count, but have you ever thought about how it could apply to your business? Consider the following statistics shared in a blog post published last year on the power of visuals:

  • The brain can see images that last for just 13 milliseconds.
  • Our eyes can register 36,000 visual messages per hour.
  • We can get the sense of a visual scene in less than 1/10 of a second.
  • 90% of information transmitted to the brain is visual.
  • Visuals are processed 60,000X faster in the brain than text.

As a society, we turn to and rely on visuals when we want to be entertained, when we want to socialize with others, and when we want to learn.

If you’re looking for ways to better communicate, educate, or connect with your current and prospective customers, your employees, or your investors, one great way to do it is by taking the time to visualize the raw data you collect and share.
