Personal data cover multiple aspects of our daily life and activities, including health, finance, social, Internet, Etc. Personal data visualisations aim to improve the user experience when exploring these large amounts of personal data and potentially provide insights to assist individuals in their decision making and achieving goals.

Still, no systematic literature review investigated the gaps in this area to assist in developing new personal data visualisation techniques focusing on user experience. In this systematic literature review, we considered studies published between 2010 and 2020 in three online databases. We screened 195 studies and identified 29 papers that met our inclusion criteria. Our key findings are various types of personal data, and users have been addressed well in the found papers, including health, sport, diet, Driving habits, lifelogging, productivity, Etc. The user types range from naive users to expert and developers users based on the experiment's target. However, mobile device capabilities and limitations regarding data visualisation tasks have not been well addressed. There are no studies on the best practices of personal data visualisation on mobile devices, assessment frameworks for data visualisation, or design frameworks for personal data visualisations
