Dancing Data

We can make your data dance.

With the advent of more complex and abundant data coupled with less time and attention to absorbing information, Global Advantage is animating data sets that make an impact.

Almost all of our projects are completed with a final briefing deck to accompany an ecosystem map. In many cases, we are including data animations of keys data points that are integral to the discussion. We call these animations ‘Dancing Data’.
