What is your favorite tool for visualizing data?

Tableau

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

Data visualization is more of an art. Creativity must be used to interpret imperfect data to help the business make better decisions. It is important to not get stuck in trying to find perfect data. Knowing how to do the data analytics is the foundation, but only half of the success of an analytics project is the results. Convincing people to follow through and do something with the results is the other half. How it is visualized drives how people will use the information.
