Good tools for Data Visualization (inforgraphics)?

I have come across a few infographics tools but have never used any. I develop company rankings and would love to be able to visualise the tables I produce. Can you recommend any free tool you've used?

I read that Infogram and raised close to $2 million recently, so I presume it works at the basic level. How difficult are PictoChart and Tableau to use? Which one should I start with?

Thanks,

George

Be sure you know about Sparklines in Excel, too. Very handy. Only works with xlsx (not xls) files.

If you have even the slightest bit of a technical background, and a couple of hours on your hands, I suggest D3.js. There are a ton of examples that show you the code and how it works, so that for some of them, all you would have to do is modify the format of your data (which can also be done easily online for you). It's free and the options available are amazing.

I use easel.ly. It's a WordPress product, free, versatile, and easy to use. Sent from my iPhone

It amazing to see at least some diversity in the solutions to the data visualization problem. Tableau is a company that develops their datavis softwares in .NET/Java and they are skyrocketing. I'd like to see more HTML5 solutions, and it sounds like from the thread response that there is some access to those kinds of tools. Still, are the HTML5 versions as robust as Tableau or Excel?

This is the sort of technology product I am interested in building. The market is hungry for it.

I have a few suggestions:

1. Free tools you might like NetVibes, Leftronic and Ducksboard. For creating very simple Data Visualizations.

2. I love (and I mean LOVE) Zapier and the website If This Then That for creating services related to my Data

3. I use Tableau on my Mac for Data Visualization demos. It's very hard to drive but beautiful charts. Visit the Tableau Public page all of charts there are free to use and demonstrate. They are upper right in Gartner and will no doubt be acquired in 18 months by one of the larger players (Oracle, Microsoft, Tibco, IBM Cognos, etc.)

4. A friend of mine works as a designer for Visual.ly who have the most incredible work and offer a build-your-own service.

5. The market is absolutely flooded with DataViz companies of all shapes and sizes (https://angel.co/data-visualization).

6. There is a great youtube video here for an overview the top Big Data players by Pactera.http://youtu.be/77y6lKUnKbo
