There are two main purposes. One purpose is for pattern recognition. Humans are very good at recognising patterns such as [linear] trends, cyclical patterns, clusters and so on. This is useful for preliminary investigation of data.

The second purpose is to illustrate summary data in a quick-and-easy way.
