In our chapter “Digital Knowledge Mapping“, we propose that visual mapping is a very effective way of sharing, integrating and creating knowledge and value for collaborative work in organizations. We present online visual collaboration tools that enable digital change in organizations and present the theoretical bases which explains the benefits of visualization for facilitating digital collaboration. We provide illustrative examples and further propose a classification of ten visual tools to show organizations what these tools are useful for, and which criteria are relevant to assess and select visual collaborative tools. We conclude with key learnings and a checklist for the integration of visual collaboration tools in organizations.

I always wondered why people like piecharts so much, although they are a very inefficient way to visualize information… I just found the answer in the article “The pie chart: Why data visualization’s greatest villain will never die” on Quarz.
According to the article by Dan Kopf, “people are more attracted to objects with curves. This may be because evolution led people to associate sharp angles with danger, while curves are a sign of health and life.”
