Infogr.am    an information graphic designing tool. The application currently offers chart building capabilities. New users can explore a list of unique informational graphics from the infogr.am homepage. Some feature eye-catching images while others draw attention with basic animations. New users can try their hand at building charts. The application offers a wide range of design options, including traditional pie and bar charts as well as people symbols and other options. Users can build a library of charts or create a new chart. Infogr.am gives the user a starter chart based on the type of chart selected. The user can add data into a spreadsheet built into the application. Infogr.am also lets users import data from their computer.

How Smart Are  Our World Leaders   In democracies1, the driver of change is typically elections; in autocracies, it is typically biology. It is often said that autocratic leaders are therefore less likely to be educated. Leaders' education level has been found to be a positive predictor of, among other things, economic growth2Here's a look at the tenure of around 700 leaders3 sorted by political longevity in the world's autocratic and anocratic countries3, along with a selection from present-day democracies5, since 1950 or thereabouts. For each country, the leader who has ruled the longest, contiguously, is shown. The time in office (in years) may be off by a few months in either direction due to rounding. Hover over a bar for more details.

Data

  1. FlowingData explores how designers, statisticians, and computer scientists use data to understand ourselves better — mainly through data visualization. Money spent, reps at the gym, time you waste, and personal information you enter online are all data. How can we understand these data flows? Data visualization lets non-experts make sense of it all. 
  2. Protovis  Protovis composes custom views of data with simple marks such as bars and dots. Unlike low-level graphics libraries that quickly become tedious for visualization, Protovis defines marks through dynamic properties that encode data, allowing inheritance, scales and layouts to simplify construction.  Protovis is free and open-source, provided under the BSD License. It uses JavaScript and SVG for web-native visualizations; no plugin required (though you will need a modern web browser)! Although programming experience is helpful, Protovis is mostly declarative and designed to be learned by example.            
  3. Statistical Data Mining Tutorials  The following links point to a set of tutorials on many aspects of statistical data mining, including the foundations of probability, the foundations of statistical data analysis, and most of the classic machine learning and data mining algorithms.   These include classification algorithms such as decision trees, neural nets, Bayesian classifiers, Support Vector Machines and cased-based (aka non-parametric) learning. They include regression algorithms such as multivariate polynomial regression, MARS, Locally Weighted Regression, GMDH and neural nets. And they include other data mining operations such as clustering (mixture models, k-means and hierarchical), Bayesian networks and Reinforcement Learning. 
  4. Data.Gov   The purpose of Data.gov is to increase public access to high value, machine readable datasets generated by the Executive Branch of the Federal Government.  As a priority Open Government Initiative for President Obama's administration, Data.gov increases the ability of the public to easily find, download, and use datasets that are generated and held by the Federal Government. Data.gov provides descriptions of the Federal datasets (metadata), information about how to access the datasets, and tools that leverage government datasets. The data catalogs will continue to grow as datasets are added. Federal, Executive Branch data are included in the first version of Data.gov.
  5. CrunchBase is the free directory of technology companies, people, and investors that anyone can edit.  It is developed and maintained by TechCrunch with the support of the tech community and visitors like you. If you have any questions about CrunchBase or the data contained within, please feel free to contact us.  Currently, all additions and edits to CrunchBase go through an approval process before they are pushed live. We are working on ways that will allow users to make immediate changes to the site. Expect to see this type of functionality rolled out soon.

Many Eyes      An experiment brought to you by IBM Research and the IBM Cognos software group.

Google Public Data Explorer    The Google Public Data Explorer makes large, public-interest datasets easy to explore, visualize and communicate. As the charts and maps animate over time, the changes in the world become easier to understand. You don't have to be a data expert to navigate between different views, make your own comparisons, and share your findings.

Students, journalists, policy makers and everyone else can play with the tool to create visualizations of public data, link to them, or embed them in their own webpages. Embedded charts and links can update automatically so you’re always sharing the latest available data.

Wordle  Wordle is a toy for generating “word clouds” from text that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text. You can tweak your clouds with different fonts, layouts, and color schemes. The images you create with Wordle are yours to use however you like. You can print them out, or save them to the Wordle gallery to share with your friends.

Visual.ly   Visually is a one-stop shop for the creation of data visualizations and infographics, bringing together Marketing Gurus, Data Nerds and Design Junkies based on shared interests. Visually Marketplace introduces ecommerce and project management into the Visually platform, making it easier than ever for buyers and sellers of infographics to get them made, distributed, liked, commented on, and shared.
