researching for my next article (on software/code)

WHAT I LEARNED RECREATING ONE CHART USING 24 TOOLS

Finding the best tool means thinking hard about your goals and needs.

Back in May of this year, I set myself a challenge: I wanted to try as many applications and libraries and programming languages in the field of data visualization as possible. To compare these tools on a level playing field, I recreated the same scatterplot (also called a bubble chart) with all of them. Based on the results, I published two listicles: One for data vis applications and one for data vis libraries and programming languages. An overview of all the tools I tried can be found in this Google Spreadsheet. Now I’ll take a higher-level view and compare these tools with each other; mapping out my learnings.

"learnings"?!



Anyway, it's a good piece, which has some pretty useful graphics of its own:

The interactive one: you can take slices, like over age 85 or under age 5. Nice capturing of the skews.
