The transformation of data, information and knowledge is represented in diagram above.

This diagram is quoted from one website which I cannot recall the URL. It is included in this website as the diagram indicates that with higher structure of a piece of data, the more meanings embed in that piece of data. Again, more human efforts needed in transforming the data to meaningful context.
