Abstract: The Information Age has put for us almost unlimited amount of information that it cannot be analyzed rationally. Rising in its place Conceptual Age stands for giving a meaning for it. Anybody can create information but the problem is how to reduce it. Visualization is the best representation method for turning complex data into information. Visual literacy must be positioned in the same way as language or numeric literacy and information literacy. Now we can create visuals faster than ever before but what good is it if we cannot interpret them. In the Conceptual Age we need to see a larger picture, analyze more processes instead of facts
