As an Excel add-in, GeoFlow provides interactive, 3-D geospatial and temporal data visualizations. It enables information workers to discover and share new insights from data through rich, 3-D data on a globe and fluid, cinematic guided tours—virtual cinematography moving through data. With dynamic data exploration that turns rows and columns of spatiotemporal data into rich 3-D maps, the term “add-in” really doesn’t do justice to the technology behind GeoFlow, a preview of which is available for download. Take a look under the hood, and you’ll see stars. But even while Curtis Wong, principal researcher at Microsoft Research Redmond, was busy giving talks about WWT, he had further ambitions in mind for the technology.

Mapping murder throughout the world Comparing murder rates of countries can really highlight the countries with problems - the ones in seriously need attention. A high murder rate gives a "tip off" that something needs to change. The UNODC have collected together all the national data on homicide for 207 countries. But of course nothing is ever simple when bringing together national statistics. Countries have different definitions of murder and the data is collected at different times and using different methods. All of this makes comparison of murder rates a messy business.

WebPlotDigitizer - Extract data from plots, images, and maps Purpose A large quantity of published data is available only in the form of plots and it is often difficult to extract numerical data accurately out of these pictures. There are several softwares available to aid this process, but most are either paid, difficult to use or lack some essential features. Also, many of the existing programs work only on a few specific operating systems and require installation by the user. Most programs only support 2D X-Y plots and so it is not possible to work with polar diagrams, ternary diagrams, microscope images or maps.

What I Learned Recreating One Chart Using 24 Tools Back in May of this year, I set myself a challenge: I wanted to try as many applications and libraries and programming languages in the field of data visualization as possible. To compare these tools on a level playing field, I recreated the same scatterplot (also called a bubble chart) with all of them. Based on the results, I published two listicles: One for data vis applications and one for data vis libraries and programming languages. An overview of all the tools I tried can be found in this Google Spreadsheet.

plasq.com “4 Stars and Editors Choice.” MacUser Dec. 2013 "Awesome!... It's intuitive and it has a wider selection of title treatments and templates - love the retro look!" Chris Shoemaker, Co-Founder of Freshi Media Using IFTTT and Google Drive to create a JSON API by Nick Moreton on CodePen JSON APIs are a pretty powerful way of connecting your frontend app to a dataset through Javascript. Most of the big web apps provide their API in JSON format (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) however, as you may know if you've ever tried to use these, they often require an OAuth login in order to access the API. This obviously isn't ideal if you don't want your users to have to log in to their Twitter/Facebook/Instagram account every time they view your app or website! Well, I've found a little bit of a workaround that may get you working with data in your front end without having to worry about stuff like OAuth.
