Free Data Visualization: 25 Best Tools Date visualization can be a pain if one is not aware of the many tools one can use in its endeavor.

That’s when our “eye-brain system” starts making assumptions. iVisDesigner iVisDesigner stands for Information Visualization Designer, which is a platform in which users can interactively create customized information visualization designs for a wide range of data structure. iVisDesigner was started around March 2013 as the undergraduate thesis project of Donghao Ren, its overall goal comes partially from the previous Visualization Assembly Line project, which allows users to freely create axis-based visualizations for multidimensional datasets, like scatterplots and parallel coordinates. In iVisDesigner, we employed a new approach. By allowing users to interactively create mappings from data elements to graphical elements, we support interactive creation of information visualization designs. iVisDesigner is much more expressive, allowing a wide range of visualization designs for different data structures be accomplished without any programming.

18 LinkedIn Apps, Tools, and Resources I tweeted the other day about LinkedIn’s Resume Builder and I got a number of surprising responses from people I would have assumed would already know that LinkedIn had a resume builder. LinkedIn has been cranking out new features and tools, and I realize that it’s too easy for me to assume that everyone else knows what I know, so I’m compiling all of the interesting offerings LinkedIn has released in 1 place for easy consumption.
