Big Data Visualization

High volumes of data are being generated at an ever-increasing rate from a wide variety of sources such as health care, manufacturing, IoT, cybersecurity, financial sectors, social media to name a few. Data is not only voluminous but also dynamic, noisy, heterogeneous, and often completely unstructured. It is no longer possible to analyze the raw data merely through traditional methods. More than ever, there is a strong need for effective visualizations of big data as an integral part of the analysis process. There are key research challenges in big data visualization both from the perspective of how we can build tools and systems that facilitate responsive visual data analysis regardless of the size and nature of the data, as well as how to leverage prolific and complex data to improve understanding via visualization, interactive data visualization in particular.

Big data visualization forces a much greater emphasis on developing effective ways to navigate large data to arrive at insights and brings with it logistical challenges relating to infrastructures such as storage, networking, and computational capacities. Modern big data visualization relies on a cross-section of disciplines including statistics, human factors, computer science, design, and network engineering. Building effective data science tools for analyzing, exploring, and drawing insights from big data visualization is rapidly becoming the cornerstone of modern science across the board.
The objective of this special issue is to highlight cutting-edge, transdisciplinary work to improve big data visualization capabilities, with a particular emphasis on interactive data visualization of large, complex data.
