Overlapping issues and solutions in data visualization techniques

Nur Diana Izzati Husin, Nur Atiqah Sia Abdullah


The tremendous growth of big data has caused the data visualization process becomes more complex and challenging, and yet, data is expected to be increased from time to time. With these massive and complex data, it is getting harder for the data analyst to interpret or read the data in order to gain new knowledge or information. Therefore, it is important to visualize these data using different techniques. However, there are many remaining issues in data visualization techniques. These issues make the data visualization a big challenge to the data analyst. The most common issue in data visualization techniques is the overlapping issue. This paper reviews the overlapping issues in multidimensional and network data visualization techniques. The existing solutions are also reviewed and discussed in term of advantages and disadvantages. This paper concludes the advantages of the overlapping issues and solutions, before discussing their drawbacks. This paper suggests the color-based approach, relocation, and reduction of data sets to solve the overlapping issues.
