What is your favorite tool for visualizing data?

I use all of the big boys in the Adobe Creative Suite for most design work. A little Excel, a little R, a little Tableau. Bit of D3, but my JS is shaky.

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

It's definitely a blend, which is why it requires a good team or a designer with a really unique skill set (or both). For me it leans more toward a science because, while I value aesthetics, there needs to be a specific practical application.

Help us provide better events and tell us more about yourself:
