Protovis composes custom views of data with simple marks such as bars and dots. Unlike low-level graphics libraries that quickly become tedious for visualization, Protovis defines marks through dynamic properties that encode data, allowing inheritance, scales and layouts to simplify construction. Protovis is free and open-source, provided under the BSD License. It uses JavaScript and SVG for web-native visualizations; no plugin required (though you will need a modern web browser)! Although programming experience is helpful, Protovis is mostly declarative and designed to be learned by example. Protovis is no longer under active development.The final release of Protovis was v3.3.1 (4.7 MB). This project was led by Mike Bostock and Jeff Heer of the Stanford Visualization Group, with significant help from Vadim Ogievetsky. Updates June 28, 2011 - Protovis is no longer under active development. September 17, 2010 - Release 3.3 is available on GitHub. May 28, 2010 - ZOMG! Getting Started

Please visit Gapminder World Offline (Beta) instead. Gapminder Desktop The Media Computing Group : Code Gestalt is an software visualization tool that lets programmers illustrate themes and concepts based on the vocabulary used by the source code. We implemented Code Gestalt as plug-in for Eclipse and built upon the JDT and Cultivate (2). The user interface is inspired by Relo (1), but focuses more on developer communication and semantics. The user can create diagrams with a simple drag-and-drop interface and edit it using contextual UI elements.

humble finance - html5 visualization HumbleFinance is an HTML5 data visualization tool written as a demonstration of interactive graphing in HTML5. It is similar to the Flash tool on The tool itself is written entirely in JavaScript, using the Prototype and Flotr libraries. It can be used to display any two 2-D data sets of real numerical data which share an axis. Demo: This demo displays historical stock data for Google from their IPO to March 5th, 2010. This data was acquired through the Google Finance website.

Let your ideas overlap In a Venn diagram, large circles represent groups of things with a shared attribute. Areas where these circles overlap represent individuals that belong equally to both groups. For example, a Venn diagram with one circle representing things made with yeast and another representing alcoholic beverages would have an overlapping zone where you could find both beer and wine.
