Top 20 Data Visualization Tools

In: Graphic Tools

25 Sep 2012

A list compiled by Brian Suda over at netmagazine.com. It’s a little heavy on java libraries – but I suppose that’s the direction visualization is heading. Still, you think basic tools like Illustrator, or BI software like Tableau would have made it in there somewhere.

“It’s a little heavy on java libraries”. Where by “java” you mean “JavaScript” ?

Thilo beat me to it, but of the 20, only Weka, Gephi, and Processing could be loosely described as “Java libraries”, and the latter two are more applications written in Java. Javascript is a wholly different thing.
