Visualisation catalogue

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


Protovis allows composing custom views of data with simple marks such as bars and dots. Protovis allows defining marks through dynamic properties that encode data, allowing inheritance, scales and layouts to simplify construction.


Power BI is a Data Visualization and Business Intelligence tool that converts data from different data sources to interactive dashboards and BI reports. Power BI suite provides multiple software, connector, and services - Power BI desktop, Power BI service based on Saas, and mobile Power BI apps available for different platforms. These set of services are used by business users to consume data and build BI reports.


MATLAB is a programming language developed by MathWorks. It started out as a matrix programming language where linear algebra programming was simple. It can be run both under interactive sessions and as a batch job. MATLAB proposes toolbox for specific applications like statistics analysis, machine learning and finance.

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.

Interactive charts for browsers and mobile devices.

A JavaScript charting library which allows to create interactive charts for web, mobile and enterprise applications. FusionCharts Suite has 90+ chart types and 1000+ maps for visualising data.

D3sparql is a JavaScript library for executing SPARQL query and transforming the resulted JSON in D3.js for visualisation. It therefore allows the visualisation of SPARQL results.

Visualisation type: Bars Dots/ bubbles Shapes/ proportions

Data type: Numerical data

Interaction type: Static


D3.js is a JavaScript library that allows to draw (almost) all kinds of visualisations using JavaScript, HTML and CSS. This tool is very technical and targeted to developers.

"Quality of life" is a tool which provides an insight into the different aspects of quality of life in your country and gives you the possibility to do comparisons within and between countries.

Visualisation type: Infographics Shapes/ proportions

Data type: Numerical data

Interaction type: Dynamic


SAP Lumira is known as a visual intelligence tool to create and visualize stories on dataset. It was earlier known as Visual Intelligence tool where you could visualize data and create stories to provide graphical details of the data. Data is entered in Lumira as data set and you can apply filters, hierarchies, calculated columns to build documents on Lumira. You can choose various charts like Bar charts, Pie charts, etc. to visualize the data effectively.
