Visualizing data can help a project manager or project team gain critical insights that would otherwise be overlooked. Another advantage is visualization tools can simplify reams of data in a single image. Previously, the same amount of information was scattered in different media such as pie and bar charts. For example, the Radial Tidy Tree below show hierarchies via nodes. Below the tree is a sunburst that is collapsible.
