What is your favorite tool for visualizing data?

There are many visualisation method I prefer to use in R statistical packages. Most preferred is the heat maps (heatmap.2). It has been useful in various interpretations to understand the data better.

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

I guess bit of both, one would need an artistic vision in order to see what, which and how it looks better and explains the data easier. And yes in order to make things easily explained by others one need to understand it better. For better interpretation and understanding of what the data is one need to understand the science behind it.
