Visualizing IoT big data is as much an art as it is a science. The palette is underlying algorithms and the exterior is color and texture mapping. Images aren’t static – they are interacted with in 3D or animated as a movie. The result is a science-based art form designed to convey information or present a story where the human mind can discover hidden value invisible to the algorithm. As a subset of descriptive analytics, it is another tool for the data scientist, subject matter expert or executive to extract value form the numbers coming from IoT sensors and data services.
