How do various disciplines use information and data visualization for decision-making, communication, or collaboration?

How are information visualization tools used in your discipline?  Is visual literacy becoming more important in your field?  Let's discuss!

I'm taking a course about information visualization and visual communication this semester.  I'll be posting interesting links and resources as I come across them over the next few months on my Interactive Multimedia Technology blog. 

I'd like to hear from others about the way information visualization is used, or could be used, in various disciplines to support decision-making, knowledge-sharing, collaboration, and understanding.

Every day, people make important decisions based on "data" or information that might be misleading, either because they do not understand what the data means, because the data isn't represented in a meaningful way, or for other reasons.   Does this happen in your field?
