    Sacramento is the capital city of the U.S. state of California, and the county seat of Sacramento County. It is located at the confluence of the Sacramento River and the American River in the northern portion of California’s expansive Central Valley. With a 2009 estimated population of 489,676, it is the sixth-largest city in California.[1] Sacramento is the core cultural and economic center of the Sacramento metropolitan area which includes seven counties; with an estimated population of 2,927,123.[2] Its metropolitan area is the fourth largest in California after the Greater Los Angeles Area, San Francisco Bay Area, and the San Diego metropolitan area as well as the 25th largest in the United States. A city attaining global status, Sacramento was cited by Time magazine as America’s most ethnically and racially integrated city in 2002

      Well, Akismet considered it SPAM, I do so too, but maybe Sacramento needs all the attention it can get? 🙂

    Comprehensive and thorough-thanks for sharing it! The playing field in BI is becoming almost as complex as the data analyzed which is why a resource like this is so valuable. If you are in the financial services sector, I encourage you to check

  18. 2010-03-26 at 19:45

    Thanks for compiling all of these resources.. very useful. There is much need for good work in visual design and data visualization..

  19. 2010-03-21 at 15:42

    This is a great compilation. The World bank Data Visulaizer is the same as GapMinder. Isnt it?

    • 2010-03-21 at 15:54

      Indeed, Kapil, Hans Rosling’s son got a job as a developer at Google’s after Google discovered the Gapminder software which was written by Rosling junior and that landed him a job with Google instantly. I believe the arrangement is that Google bought the software outright and Gapminder, a charity, has “lifelong” rights to it for free.

      Many thanks, Raffy, will update my database and publish in due course!

    I have the pleasure to brief on our Data Visualization software “Trend Compass”.

    TC is a new concept in viewing statistics and trends in an animated way by displaying 5 axis (X, Y, Time, Bubble size & Bubble color) instead of just the traditional X and Y axis. It could be used in analysis, research, presentation etc. In the banking sector, we have Deutsche Bank New York as our client.

    Link on Chile’s Earthquake (27/02/2010):

    This a link on weather data :

    This is a bank link to compare Deposits, Withdrawals and numbers of Customers for different branches over time ( all in 1 Chart) :

    Misc Examples :

    This is a project we did with Princeton University on US unemployment :

    A 3 minutes video presentation of above by Professor Alan Krueger Bendheim Professor of Economics and Public Affairs at Princeton University and currently Chief Economist at the US Treasury using Trend Compass :

    Latest financial links on the Central Bank of Egypt:

    I hope you could evaluate it and give me your comments. So many ideas are there.

    You can download a trial version. It has a feature to export EXE,PPS,HTML and AVI files. The most impressive is the AVI since you can record Audio/Video for the charts you create.

    All the best.

    Some serious visualization material! Inspirational!
    Eyes wide open! Keep tracking!
    Cheers and read you soon

    Microsoft has this new software pivot which is again for data visualization on the web ….Would that also qualify to be included in the list above?

    • 2010-03-05 at 16:31

      Thanks for notifying. Indeed, anything that will enhance the experience of data would qualify – rather err on the volumous side so to speak, who knows what users might be looking for?

  24. 2010-03-04 at 12:25

    Gapminder is really amazing…

    • 2010-03-04 at 12:29

      Thanks for commenting, Universalgeni. Indeed, and I believe, if graphical (in more than one sense) methods had been used more in education and the media, even the Fed might have understood a bubble, but, if nothing else, a few homeowners might have realised they were buying when the market was overheated and have thought twice about it.

  25. 2010-02-19 at 14:14

    Thanks for the link, looks very useful for our planned research studies
