Question depth of coverage basic question


I am a newbie to NGS analysis.I was wondering how useful it is to view/calculate depth of read coverage for discrete intervals of the chromosome/genome.What can we infer from it ?I understand that we can find out how many times a read/base has been sequenced but what purpose does it serve?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
