Data visualization is part art and part science. As with any science it can greatly assist in knowledge transfer and support innovation or it can be misused and possibly create inappropriate actions or assumptions based upon information derived from incomplete data, incorrect logic and even biasness. I love hearing/seeing various ways people are visualizing data. Some even visualize "data visualization methods" in thought provoking ways. See http://www.visual-literacy.org/periodic_table/periodic_table.html for one example.
