Visualisation Tools and Resources
Drawing by numbers organises data visualisation tools under four categories - Charts and graphs; Mapping and mashups; Design, layout and presentation; and Data management tools. Browse through them below.
However advanced their capabilities, most of the tools profiled here address fairly simple data and design tasks. They also have feature sets that anyone with a little technical knowledge (and some persistence) could use to make something. They all have acceptable support structures and materials and a degree of non-English language support. They are also all free to use or open source. There are commercial alternatives to these tools as well, and we will be profiling them soon.
The Waiting room lists tools that we haven't yet profiled, but are still reviewing. If you know of a tool or resource that you think should be in here, please do contact us. We've also compiled Resources under each tool - learning materials and tutorials from other websites - to get you started on some basics.
