Geodata Eurostat. The top 20 data visualisation tools. One of the most common questions I get asked is how to get started with data visualisations. Beyond following blogs, you need to practise – and to practise, you need to understand the tools available. In this article, I want to introduce you to 20 different tools for creating visualisations: from simple charts to complex graphs, maps and infographics.

Download data by country

You can use programs such as 7-zip, PKZIP or StuffIt to decompress the files. Vector data are stored as ESRI shapefiles Grid (raster) data are stored as DIVA gridfiles Each "shapefile" consist of at least three actual files. Gridfiles are used in DIVA-GIS. A gridfile with "country mask" indicates that the areas outside the selected country are masked out. A DBF (dBase file) is a dbase format database table. Resolution.
