Picture is worth a thousand words and good visualization helps to extract more knowledge from data. Big Data is a particularly difficult case for visualization. Variety of data provide multitudes of details that need to be understood, and Volume of data makes variations of data hard to summarize into a "big picture". Conflict between objectives of detailed view and generality of the picture is pervasive in Big Data. Velocity of data change adds even more high paced changes that amplifies complexity.
This meetup group is focusing on unique challenges and solutions in Big Data Visualization space. It brings together researchers and practitioners in the field of Big Data Analytics with the purpose of having "meeting on minds", having fun and pushing envelope forward.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
