Big Policy Canvas Research Roadmap

[...] * How can big data visualization and visual analytics help policy makers? First, generate high involvement of citizens in policy-making. One of the main applications of visualization is in making sense of large datasets and identifying key variables and causal relationships in a non-technical way. Similarly, it enables non-technical users to make sense of data and interact with them.
