Thanks Anders. (I remember many years ago when you taught me yEd while we were at Paddington Station. J)

Can anyone suggest fairly easy to learn and cheap software for stunning data visualization that is more design wise than Excel looking?


Hmm. I think the answer depends a lot on what kind of data you have. I have never tried any integrated systems for visualization myself, preferring to work with tools like Matlab/Octave and then export to Illustrator. One reason is that depending on the data, you might want to do very different things, and then it is nice to use software good for that particular kind of data. But most of these tools tend to be more like programming than design. 


Tableau looks nice, but I wonder how flexible it is. I guess the best approach is just to try the free version. 



I am a fan of yEd for graph visualisation and layout.
