This collection of big data research projects shows how easy it's becoming to visualize such undertakings not only for industry-specific purposes, but also to share with the public in general and better predict patterns. Through interactive charts and, more commonly, world maps, researchers are able to forecast insights and findings in an easy to understand way for the best intellectual consumption.

Since such big data research projects as 'Life Expectancy and Probability of Death,' 'Millennium Development Goals' and 'Air Quality,' are often hard metrics to follow, it's clear that these visualizations are not only clever, but creative as well. At one glance, people are able to discern major points, which is especially great for presentations. Not to mention that the use of such techniques turn dry material into something truly interesting and more forward-facing.
