What is your favorite tool for visualizing data?

Excel and ArcGIS.

Do you think data visualization is more of an art or more of a science? Why?

Both - you need to have the domain knowledge to ensure the integrity of the information being communicated; the technical knowledge to manipulate the inputs and imagery; and a strong grasp of graphic design principles (e.g., color theory). But one also needs the artistic instinct to visualize the end product and ensure that the focus is on the idea, not the technique.
