Creating a map for data visualization is often a daunting task for organizations. Not every organization can hire a GIS analyst and developer team, and often times maps can be lethargic and lacking a good user experience. With all of the different data visualization tools at your disposal, how do you choose a tool that gives you the option of visualizing all of your data? Even more, what happens when data visualization no longer satiates your need for understanding data and data discovery becomes the main focus?
