  1. How do I suggest something new for this list?

    • Michael Bauer

      How about using the comment section? We switched from a user-generated list to a curated one, since we believe there is value in suggesting a a few tools that are a great foundation to build on.

      • Sounds good and definitely agree re curated. You may want to put some info somewhere on the page (or sidebar) to say how you can suggest new items.

  2. How about adding RAW in the Presenting section, especially that it can produce non-conventional charts and the output charts can be easily exported into SVG to be dealt with in InkScape, etc. http://app.raw.densitydesign.org/

    Can I suggest CartoDB (open source map visualisation platform, works great with TileMIll) and Tableau (closed source, but free if open data, desktop tool for data visualisations, used by many newspapers)

    This list should contains import.io – the tool for everybody who want to e.g. extract a table from some website. It’s easy to use even for non-programming persons.

    Here’s another recommendation: Mode, a new collaboration & sharing tool for data: https://modeanalytics.com/

    I’d also like to recommend http://www.silk.co. Silk is a data-first publishing platform that lets anyone convert CSVs into fully interactive visualizations (tables, charts, graphs,galleries, groups) and sites in minutes. Each row of CSV info is rendered as a Web page and data (numbers) is a first-class citizen on the page. Geocoding is automated on the import and each view (which generates a unique URL describing the filter setting) can also be embedded in other sites as an iFrame. Check out http://votescount.hrw.org/ (for Human Rights Watch), http://wikileaks.silk.co or http://www.worldstartupwiki.org/. Thanks!
