Choose one Data Visualization and one Compound Visualization by placing your mouse cursor over each option.

Lastly, provide an example which illustrates how you would use your chosen visualizations.
Discussion Length (word count): At least 250 words
References: At least two peer-reviewed, scholarly journal references.
When replying to a classmate, use 3 – 5 sentences offering your opinion on what your thoughts on the advantages and disadvantages of their choices.
