They are used a lot of sample area which occurs our study subject. Some of them allow us to view, understand, question, interpret, and visualize data in many ways that reveal relationships, patterns, and trends in the form of maps, globes, reports, and charts. They help people answer questions and solve problems by looking at people’s data in a way that is quickly understood and easily shared.
