As the information we have access to every day grows in volume, it becomes equally important to classify and structure it, while devising newer and better methods of handling, understanding and presenting it in a quick and efficient manner. Information can be fun and interesting if transmitted in the right way and data visualization plays an important role in doing so. One of primary qualities of data visualization is its simplicity while being descriptive too.
Being one of the leading proponents of customized web development in Mumbai, we have seen the popularity graph of infographs grow rapidly with a lot of them floating across the web, mostly in the form of static images. With internet content growing in volume and complexity, it is also becoming more and more data driven in nature. The most common tools of web design are tables, venn diagrams, bar graphs and pie charts with many other entry level tools finding their way into web development.
As few users would imagine, Excel is a pretty useful tool when complex things like heat maps of cells, scatter plots, etc. can be carried out. It is also a wonderful way of creating visualizations for internal use or quickly exploring data, but is limited in use when it comes to creating graphics, due to a fixed set of colours, styles and lines. As a highly creative web design company in Mumbai, we recommend the use of CSV/JSON, Google chart API, Flot, Raphael and D3 (Data-Driven Documents) for the purpose of data visualization.
