Glass orb with reflection of the landscape in it

I’ve seen a number of data visualisation tools recently – there’s ManyEyes (Tony Hirst has done some fun things with the HEFCE funding data); I’ve also mentioned Gapminder (powered by Trendalyzer – now owned by Google) on more than one occasion.
Adam Ostrow, at Mashable, lists 16 Awesome Data Visualization Tools. He wrote the post in 2007, so since then some of the tools (e.g. Crazy Egg) have vanished, but it’s still a useful list of ways of representing data visually.

  1. I was also reminded of VUE today – which I’d forgotten about earlier.
    Funnily enough, given how much I dislike mindmapping, it’s weird how much I am attracted to tools that present data visually. Perhaps it’s the having to decide what is linked that worries me, rather than being able to rely on software to help me at some point or other in the process.
