Why create a data view?

Pouring over records in a dataset is a slow and tedious process for identifying relationships, patterns and trends in data (if they can be identified at all).  Most people are not going to take the time to do it.  Data views, such as charts and maps, offer a way to make data presentation interesting, visually pleasing and hopefully informative.  But most importantly, good charts and maps help reveal patterns, trends and relationships in the data that would have gone unnoticed by even those most familiar with the data.
