Visualization Tools

Tools, in the form of editors with graphical user interface or as coding libraries, are indepensable for leveraging the full power of data visualization.

We build novel tools, often with interaction and openly available on the web. We create tools for specific data types (e.g., networks) and want to understand why certain tools are more successful and usable than others. How can we make them more useful? What problems do people encounter when trying to learn and use these tools?

We also collect tools from many authors on our VisTools browser.
