Visualization Of Data

I’m sure Tufte would be all for this. Sometimes, we have so much data that it is just overwhelming. Generally, we do statistical analysis on data to get the underlying story behind it. But what about visualizing it. ManyEyes is a data visualization tool built by Martin Wattenberg at IBM that does just that. (Full disclaimer, I do know the creator.) It allows anyone to upload a dataset and use any number of their visualization tools to view the data. It is amazing how looking at data from a different angle can result in new discoveries.
