Data / Information Visualization Tools

This is not a fully created page - just a placeholder for the moment. Feel free to improve upon it!

Brief Description

Creating visualizations of data can offer another way of communicating and sharing that data with others. Visuals can stimulate conversation and meaning making around data that is different from simply presenting the textual or numerical data. This is especially important when working across cultures and languages. Please note that visuals carry as much cultural connotation than any other communication form, so this does not mean that a visual will necessarily have a universal interpretation!
