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.

Rstudio

RStudio is an integrated development environment (IDE) for R. It includes a console, syntax-highlighting editor that supports direct code execution, as well as tools for plotting, history, debugging and workspace management. RStudio is available in open source and commercial editions and runs on the desktop (Windows, Mac, and Linux) or in a browser connected to RStudio Server or RStudio Server Pro (Debian/Ubuntu, RedHat/CentOS, and SUSE Linux).

Tool
Steller

Steller is a free storytelling app, which allows creating photo and video stories with an emphasis on design.

Tool
Timeline.js

TimelineJS is an open-source tool that enables anyone to build visually rich, interactive timelines. Beginners can create a timeline using nothing more than a Google spreadsheet, like the one we used for the Timeline above. Experts can use their JSON skills to create custom installations, while keeping TimelineJS's core functionality.

Tool
VisPy

VisPy is a high-performance interactive 2D/3D data visualization library. VisPy leverages the computational power of modern Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) through the OpenGL library to display very large datasets. Applications of VisPy include: - High-quality interactive scientific plots with millions of points. - Direct visualization of real-time data. - Fast interactive visualization of 3D models (meshes, volume rendering). - OpenGL visualization demos. - Scientific GUIs with fast, scalable visualization widgets (Qt or IPython notebook with WebGL).

Visualisation type: Dots/ bubbles Grids Lines

Tool
Protovis

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.

Tool
MATLAB

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.

Tool
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.

Tool
JavaScript Object Notation (JSON)

JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) is a lightweight data-interchange format, based on a subset of the JavaScript Programming Language, Standard ECMA-262 3rd Edition - December 1999. JSON is a text format that is completely language independent but uses conventions that are familiar to programmers of the C-family of languages, including C, C++, C#, Java, JavaScript, Perl, Python, and many others.
