Free Tools to Visualize Your Data Data visualization has grown in popularity as datasets have become larger and tools have become more user-friendly. This area is eagerly being explored by researchers in a variety of disciplines. Although many people think of numbers when they consider types of data, data comes in many forms–including text! In fact, for many researchers, especially those in the humanities or social sciences, text is their primary data source.

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. Almost everything here is available for free, and some you have probably installed already.

Large-scale RDF Graph Visualization Tools AI3 Assembles 26 Candidate Tools The pending UMBEL subject concept “backbone” ontology will involve literally thousands of concepts. In order to manage and view such a large structure, a concerted effort to find suitable graph visualization software was mounted. This post presents the candidate listing, as well as some useful starting resources and background information. A subsequent post will present the surprise winner of our evaluation. Datasets - Gephi:Wiki Gephi sample datasets, in various format (GEXF, GDF, GML, NET, GraphML, DL, DOT). Feel free to add new datasets. Be sure you cite original authors. Supported graph formats are described here.

The 37 best tools for data visualization It's often said that data is the new world currency, and the web is the exchange bureau through which it's traded. As consumers, we're positively swimming in data; it's everywhere from labels on food packaging design to World Health Organisation reports. As a result, for the designer it's becoming increasingly difficult to present data in a way that stands out from the mass of competing data streams. One of the best ways to get your message across is to use a visualization to quickly draw attention to the key messages, and by presenting data visually it's also possible to uncover surprising patterns and observations that wouldn't be apparent from looking at stats alone. And nowadays, there's plenty of free graphic design software to help you do just that. As author, data journalist and information designer David McCandless said in his TED talk: "By visualizing information, we turn it into a landscape that you can explore with your eyes, a sort of information map.

Introduction to Network Visualization with GEPHI New tutorial available! A completely new version of this tutorial has been published, with 2 complete and complementary datasets to learn and explore many basic and advanced features of Gephi: To the new tutorial Gephi workshop at University of Bern (photo Radu Suciu) Social Network Analysis is a lens, a way of looking at reality. NAViGaTOR - Network Analysis, Visualization, & Graphing TORonto NAViGaTOR (Network Analysis, Visualization, & Graphing TORonto) is a software package for visualizing and analyzing protein-protein interaction networks. NAViGaTOR can query OPHID / I2D - online databases of interaction data - and display networks in 2D or 3D. To improve scalability and performance, NAViGaTOR combines Java with OpenGL to provide a 2D/3D visualization system on multiple hardware platforms. NAViGaTOR also provides analytical capabilities and supports standard import and export formats such as GO and the Proteomics Standards Initiative (PSI). Features NAViGaTOR combines a visualization system implemented in OpenGL with a graphical user interface and analytical algorithms implemented in Java.

Features Gephi is a tool for data analysts and scientists keen to explore and understand graphs. Like Photoshop™ but for graph data, the user interacts with the representation, manipulate the structures, shapes and colors to reveal hidden patterns. The goal is to help data analysts to make hypothesis, intuitively discover patterns, isolate structure singularities or faults during data sourcing. It is a complementary tool to traditional statistics, as visual thinking with interactive interfaces is now recognized to facilitate reasoning.

The science behind data visualisation Over the last couple of centuries, data visualisation has developed to the point where it is in everyday use across all walks of life. Many recognise it as an effective tool for both storytelling and analysis, overcoming most language and educational barriers. But why is this? How are abstract shapes and colours often able to communicate large amounts of data more effectively than a table of numbers or paragraphs of text? UWGB Commons for the Digital and Public Humanities “Gephi is an open-source software for visualizing and analysing large networks graphs. Gephi uses a 3D render engine to display graphs in real-time and speed up the exploration. You can use it to explore, analyse, spatialise, filter, cluterize, manipulate and export all types of graphs.” Gephi is a program downloaded from the internet, and can be found here. First your group should decide what instances/variable/interactions you will be collecting information about.
