March 2009: Information Visualization Tools

As businesses continue to evolve they generate and collect lots of data about themselves and their customers. There is a need to understand and analyse the vast amounts of data to help with various business activities and processes. Information visualization communicates abstract data through the use of interactive visual interfaces. The value of information visualisation is that it enables users to gain knowledge about the internal structure of the data and causal relationships in it. In this talk a number of web based information visualization tools are demonstrated including: Many Eyes, prefuse, and the Google Visualization Toolkit.
