Data Visualization Review: Gephi, Free Graph Exploration Software I do not often get to play with networks, yet I find them fascinating and full of knowledge gathering potential. The data visualization works of Moritz Stefaner, Jer Thorp, and Mark Lombardi captivate me. I am intrigued by relationships, how we perceive them, and how we can understand them. Gephi, the "Open Graph Viz Platform", is not just for the hobbiest node nerd. So what is Gephi capable off? Gephi interface displaying airline traffic data. Pros — Options! Cons — Interface is a bit cluttered. Main interface displaying the Diseasome data. Review Overall, Gephi is a useful and interesting tool. There are some plugins available for Gephi that extend the functionality. The only thing keeping Gephi from being a professional grade tool is its bugginess and lack of documentation. Graph of Minard's data using Gephi and the GeoLayout plugin. For the Purists Gephi is a purist's delight. Two nerdy charts of network statistics that Gephi will output.

22 free tools for data visualization and analysis You may not think you've got much in common with an investigative journalist or an academic medical researcher. But if you're trying to extract useful information from an ever-increasing inflow of data, you'll likely find visualization useful -- whether it's to show patterns or trends with graphics instead of mountains of text, or to try to explain complex issues to a nontechnical audience. There are many tools around to help turn data into graphics, but they can carry hefty price tags. The cost can make sense for professionals whose primary job is to find meaning in mountains of information, but you might not be able to justify such an expense if you or your users only need a graphics application from time to time, or if your budget for new tools is somewhat limited. Here's a rundown of some of the better-known options, many of which were demonstrated at the Computer-Assisted Reporting (CAR) conference last month.

What’s not to like? Colored charts and illustrations deliver connections better than tables and figures and as users spend time looking back and forth the full infographic, they stay on the site longer. Plus, readers who like what they see are more likely to share visual guides more than articles. While not everyone can make infographics from scratch, there are tools available on the Web that will help you create your very own infographics.
