A great thing about data science – and data visualization in particular – is that you can use data science tools to get information about a subject very quickly. This is particularly true when you know how to present the information. When you know the best technique for visualizing data, you can use those tools to present information in a way that can help you increase your understanding very quickly.

Using a few tools from R, I created a map of lithium production within about 15 minutes. The maps that I created certainly don’t tell the full story, but they at least provide a baseline of knowledge. If you’re…
