TECHNOLOGY: Data Visualization
Date visualizers require a bachelor's and master’s degree (or equal professional experience) in computer science, maths, cartography, GIS, design or comparable major and 5 years of professional experience in data visualization/design. Visualization jobs are often a component of data analyst or data scientist roles.
At the core of scientific visualization is the representation of data graphically - through images, animations, and videos - to improve understanding and develop insight. Data visualizers develop data-driven images, maps, and visualizations from information collected by Earth-observing satellites, airborne missions, and ground measurements. Visualizations allow us to explore data, phenomena and behavior; they are particularly effective for showing large scales of time and space, and "invisible" processes (e.g. flows of energy and matter) as integral parts of the models.
