The catalogue is a collection of visualisation tools, trainings and re-usable visualisations for all levels of data visualisation expertise, from beginner to expert.

Mathematica

Mathematica is the creation of Stephen Wolfram. At the heart of Mathematica is a computer algebra system, that is, a system for doing algebraic manipulations symbolically (and therefore exactly). However, Mathematica also incorporates floating point (or finite precision) computation, arbitrary precision arithmetic, graphics, and text processing. It is also a programming environment.
