The "big data" revolution is here and has become more accessible than ever. There is now an overarching need to present this data in a way that helps the user understand and interact with this information in a more efficient/concise/simple/straight-forward manner. As Edward Tufte puts it, we're "mapping multiple dimensions of information on a 2D plot [a computer screen]." The purpose of this group is to bring together people who are interested in mapping data and visualizations and the artistically talented individuals who can bring new insight into the visualization realm. No experience is needed, but we can open the discussion from more static platforms such as ggplot2 (R) to highly interactive platforms such as d3.js.
