Data Visualization – The secret’s now out!

Ever wonder how the folks over at created their utterly gorgeous graphics? I did. Fortunately, to give back to the community (something we love here at The Industry), the team has released their Selected Tools list. In it, they detail and list all the tools which are behind some of the incredible images they’ve created.

Infographics can be wonderful things when executed tastefully. If you’ve wanted to create one, but never known how to go about it, these should help you out. Selected Tools is a collection of tools that we, the people behind, work with on a daily basis and recommend warmly. This is not a list of everything out there, but instead a thoughtfully curated selection of our favourite tools that will make your life easier creating meaningful and beautiful data visualizations.

If you’re lucky enough to have a great deal of data with which you want to create graphics, give these tools a try. If you want some dummy data to plug in to these tools, have a look here! If you create something great, let us know in the comments!
