Top 12 Data Visualization Tools You Must Know

Top 12 Data Visualization tools to choose from: Tableau, Google Charts, Zoho Analytics, Microsoft Power BI, Qlik Sense, Plotly, Domo, Infogram, D3.js, Databox, Datawrapper, Highcharts

Data visualization is the process of interpreting or representing data graphically. Generally, it is the graphical or visual representation of data using charts, tables, histograms, and other info-graphics.

Data plays a major role in any type of organization. Data visualization helps us understand certain trends and insights, and make important decisions based on them.

Through visual representation, you can show complex loads of data in a very simplistic manner.

What Are Data Visualization Tools?

Imagine going through a record of one million users and grouping them based on their age range. That would be a very tedious task.

Data visualization tools extract information from such records and present them to you or to anyone who needs the data in a visual way.

In the next section, you'll see some of the best data visualization tools to choose from.

Top 12 Data Visualization Tools You Must Know

CMPlot.jl: Cloudy Mountain Plot Function in Julia

CMPlot.jl - Cloudy Mountain Plot in Julia 

An informative RDI categorical distribution plot inspired by Violin, Bean and Pirate Plots.

(RDI = Raw data + Descriptive statistics + Inferential statistics)

Like Violin plots, it shows smoothed kernel density curves, revealing information which would be hidden in boxplots, for example presence of multiple "peaks" ("modes") in the distribution "mountain".

Like Bean plots, it shows the raw data, drawn as a cloud of points. By default all data points are shown but you can optionally control this and limit the display to a subset of the data.

Like Pirate plots, it marks confidence intervals (either from Student's T or as Bayesian Highest Density Intervals or as interquantile ranges) for the probable position of the true population mean.

Since by default it does not symmetrically mirror the density curves, it allows immediate comparisions of distributions side-by-side.

Elements of a cloudy mountain plot

The plotting function comes with a large number of options, allowing full customization of the results. On the other hand it is also automatic enough to be able to work with only two arguments: a dataframe and the label/symbol of the dataframe column containing your X (the categorical data).

Documentation

Please refer to the online documentation at readthedocs.io

Download and installation

CMPlot is pure Julia code. It has no platform-specific dependencies and should thus work on all platforms. It requires the packages DataFrames Distributions and PlotlyJS. The latest version of CMPlot can be installed simply by typing:

julia> import Pkg; Pkg.add("CMPlot")

(from the official Julia registry) or

julia> ]
(v1.1) pkg> dev https://github.com/g-insana/CMPlot.jl.git

to install from this GitHub page.

Alternatively you can also save CMPlot.jl to your julia loadpath or add the directory where you downloaded it to your load path:

julia> push!(LOAD_PATH, "./")

There is also a version in Python.

Tutorial

Check the jupyter notebook for usage and examples. You can use the jupyter notebook for fast experimentation or download the module and use it in your data mining and data visualization projects. Note: if the version on github is not rendering properly, try this one, via nbviewer.jupyter.org.

Quickstart

julia> using CMPlot
julia> using PlotlyJS

 #call the cmplot directly inside a plotly Figure function as:

julia> plot(cmplot(mydataframe,xcol=:xsymbol)...)

 #alternatively get traces and layout as separate variables, so that you can modify them or combine with others before passing them to Figure() function:

julia> traces,layout=cmplot(mydataframe,xcol=:xsymbol)

julia> # [...] do something with traces/layout

julia> plot(traces,layout) # plot it

Arguments/Options

The only mandatory arguments for CMPlot are a dataframe containing the data and either a string or a list of strings which label the columns containing the discrete independent variables in the dataframe, as shown above in the Quickstart section.

Several additional optional arguments can be specified to customize the result, both in terms of content and of form.

  • xcol: a string or an array of strings, column name(s) of the dataframe that you wish to plot as "x".

This should be the categorical independent variable. If more than one column name is given, the combination of these will be used as "x". See examples for interpretation. e.g. xcol="Species"

  • ycol: a string or an array of strings, column name(s) of the dataframe that you wish to plot as "y". Optional.

These should be the continuous dependent variables. If ycol is not specified, then the function will plot all the columns of the dataframe except those specified in xcol.

e.g. ycol=["Sepal.Length","Sepal.Width"] would plot sepals' length and width as a function of the flower species

  • orientation: 'h' | 'v', default is 'h'

Orientation of the plot (horizontal or vertical)

  • xsuperimposed: boolean, default is false

The default behaviour is to plot each value of the categorical variable (or each combination of values for multiple categorical variables) in a separate position. Set to true to superimpose the plots. This is useful in combination with "side='alt'" to create asymmetrical plots and comparing combinations of categorical variables (e.g. Married + Gender ~ Wage).

  • xlabel: string or list of strings

Override for labelling (and placing) the plots of the categorical variables. Only relevant when using xsuperimposed

  • ylabel: string or list of strings

Override for labelling the dependent variables. If not specified, the labels for the dataframe ycol are used.

  • title: string

If not specified, the plot title will be automatically created from the names of the variables plotted.

e.g. title="Length of petals for the three species"

  • side: 'pos' | 'neg' | 'both' | 'alt', default is 'alt'

'pos' would create kernel density curves rising towards the positive end of the axis, 'neg' towards the negative, 'both' creates symmetric curves (like violin/bean/pirate plots). 'alt' will alternate between 'pos' and 'neg' in case where multiple ycol are plotted.

e.g. side='both'

  • altsidesflip: boolean, default is false

Set to true to flip the order of alternation between sides for the kernel density curves. Only relevant when side='alt'

  • ycolorgroups: boolean, default is true

Set to false to have the function assign a separate colour when plotting different values of the categorical variable. Leave as true if all should be coloured the same.

  • spanmode: 'soft' | 'hard', default is 'soft'

Controls the rounding of the kernel density curves or their sharp drop at their extremities. With 'hard' the span goes from the sample's minimum to its maximum value and no further.

  • pointsoverdens: boolean, default is false

Set to true to plot the raw data points over the kernel density curves. This is obviously the case when side='both', but otherwise by default points are plotted on the opposite side.

  • showpoints: boolean, default is true

Set to false to avoid plotting the cloud of data points

  • pointsopacity: float, range 0-1, default is 0.4

The default is to plot the data points at 40% opacity. 1 would make points completely opaque and 0 completely transparent (in that case you'd be better served by setting showpoints to false).

  • inf: 'hdi' | 'ci' | 'iqr' | 'none', default is 'hdi'

To select the method to use for calculating the confidence interval for the inference band around the mean. 'hdi' for Bayesian Highest Density Interval, 'ci' for Confidence Interval based on Student's T, 'iqr' for Inter Quantile Range. Use 'none' to avoid plotting the inference band.

  • conf_level: float, range 0-1, default is 0.95

Confidence level to use when inf='ci', credible mass for inf='hdi'

  • hdi_iter: integer, default is 10000

Iterations to use when performing Bayesian t-test when inf='hdi'

  • showboxplot: boolean, default is true

Set to false to avoid displaying the mini boxplot

  • markoutliers: boolean, default is true

Set to false to avoid marking the outliers

  • pointshapes: array of strings

You can specify manually which symbols to use for each distribution plotted. If not specified, a random symbol is chosen for each distribution.

  • pointsdistance: float, range 0-1, default is 0.6

Distance at which data points will be plotted, measured from the base of the density curve. 0 is at the base, 1 is at the top.

  • pointsmaxdisplayed: integer, default is 0

This option sets the maximum number of points to be drawn on the graph. The default value '0' corresponds to no limit (plot all points). This option can be useful when the data amount is massive and would prove inefficient or inelegant to plot.

  • colorrange: integer, default is nothing

By default, the distribution will be coloured independently, with the colours automatically chosen as needed for a single plot, maximising the difference in hue across the colour spectrum. You can override this by specifying a number to accomodate. This is useful when joining different plots together. E.g. if the total number of colours to be accomodating, after joining two plots, would equal 4, then set colorrange=4

  • colorshift: integer, default is 0

This option is used in combination with colorrange to skip a certain amount of colours when they are to be assigned to the distributions to be plotted. This is useful when joining different plots together, to avoid having distributions plotted with the same colour.

Plotly.R: an interactive Graphing Library for R

An R package for creating interactive web graphics via the open source JavaScript graphing library plotly.js.

Installation

Install from CRAN:

install.packages("plotly")

Or install the latest development version (on GitHub) via {remotes}:

remotes::install_github("plotly/plotly")

Getting started

Web-based ggplot2 graphics

If you use ggplot2, ggplotly() converts your static plots to an interactive web-based version!

library(plotly)
g <- ggplot(faithful, aes(x = eruptions, y = waiting)) +
  stat_density_2d(aes(fill = ..level..), geom = "polygon") + 
  xlim(1, 6) + ylim(40, 100)
ggplotly(g)

<https://i.imgur.com/G1rSArP.gifv>

By default, ggplotly() tries to replicate the static ggplot2 version exactly (before any interaction occurs), but sometimes you need greater control over the interactive behavior. The ggplotly() function itself has some convenient “high-level” arguments, such as dynamicTicks, which tells plotly.js to dynamically recompute axes, when appropriate. The style() function also comes in handy for modifying the underlying trace attributes (e.g. hoveron) used to generate the plot:

gg <- ggplotly(g, dynamicTicks = "y")
style(gg, hoveron = "points", hoverinfo = "x+y+text", hoverlabel = list(bgcolor = "white"))

<https://i.imgur.com/qRvLgea.gifv>

Moreover, since ggplotly() returns a plotly object, you can apply essentially any function from the R package on that object. Some useful ones include layout() (for customizing the layout), add_traces() (and its higher-level add_*() siblings, for example add_polygons(), for adding new traces/data), subplot() (for combining multiple plotly objects), and plotly_json() (for inspecting the underlying JSON sent to plotly.js).

The ggplotly() function will also respect some “unofficial” ggplot2 aesthetics, namely text (for customizing the tooltip), frame (for creating animations), and ids (for ensuring sensible smooth transitions).

Using plotly without ggplot2

The plot_ly() function provides a more direct interface to plotly.js so you can leverage more specialized chart types (e.g., parallel coordinates or maps) or even some visualization that the ggplot2 API won’t ever support (e.g., surface, mesh, trisurf, etc).

plot_ly(z = ~volcano, type = "surface")

<https://plot.ly/~brnvg/1134>

Learn more

To learn more about special features that the plotly R package provides (e.g., client-side linking, shiny integration, editing and generating static images, custom events in JavaScript, and more), see https://plotly-r.com. You may already be familiar with existing plotly documentation (e.g., https://plotly.com/r/), which is essentially a language-agnostic how-to guide for learning plotly.js, whereas https://plotly-r.com is meant to be more wholistic tutorial written by and for the R user. The package itself ships with a number of demos (list them by running demo(package = "plotly")) and shiny/rmarkdown examples (list them by running plotly_example("shiny") or plotly_example("rmd")). Carson also keeps numerous slide decks with useful examples and concepts.

Heatmaply: Interactive Heat Maps for R Using Plotly

heatmaply

Screenshot demo

Introduction

A heatmap is a popular graphical method for visualizing high-dimensional data, in which a table of numbers are encoded as a grid of colored cells. The rows and columns of the matrix are ordered to highlight patterns and are often accompanied by dendrograms. Heatmaps are used in many fields for visualizing observations, correlations, missing values patterns, and more.

Interactive heatmaps allow the inspection of specific value by hovering the mouse over a cell, as well as zooming into a region of the heatmap by dragging a rectangle around the relevant area.

This work is based on the ggplot2 and plotly.js engine. It produces similar heatmaps as d3heatmap (or the static heatmap.2 from gplots), with the advantage of more features such as speed (plotly.js is able to handle larger size matrix), sidebar annotation, and the ability to zoom from the dendrogram.

Please submit features requests

This package is still under active development. If you have features you would like to have added, please submit your suggestions (and bug-reports) at: https://github.com/talgalili/heatmaply/issues

Latest news

You can see the most recent changes to the package in the NEWS.md file

Code of conduct

Please note that this project is released with a Contributor Code of Conduct. By participating in this project you agree to abide by its terms.

Installation

To install the stable version on CRAN:

install.packages('heatmaply')

To install the latest ("cutting-edge") GitHub version run:


# good packages to install for this to work smoothly:

install.packages(c("Rcpp","ggplot2","munsell","htmltools","DBI","assertthat",
"gridExtra","digest","fpc","TSP","registry","gclus","gplots","RColorBrewer",
"stringr","labeling","yaml"))

# You'll need devtools
install.packages.2 <- function (pkg) if (!require(pkg)) install.packages(pkg);
install.packages.2('devtools')
# make sure you have Rtools installed first! if not, then run:
#install.packages('installr'); install.Rtools()

devtools::install_github("ropensci/plotly") # you will probably benefit from the latest version of plotly
devtools::install_github('talgalili/heatmaply')

And then you may load the package using:

library("heatmaply")

Usage

Quick example:

library(heatmaply)
heatmaply(mtcars, k_row = 3, k_col = 2)

For more (interactive) examples see the online vignette on CRAN

There are also more complex biological examples of using heatmaply in the R package heatmaplyExamples (hosted on github). Here are direct links for available examples:

Saving your heatmaply into a file

You can save an interactive version of your heatmaply into an HTML file using the following code:

dir.create("folder")
library(heatmaply)
heatmaply(mtcars, file = "folder/heatmaply_plot.html")
browseURL("folder/heatmaply_plot.html")

Similar code can be used for saving a static file (png/jpeg/pdf)

dir.create("folder")
library(heatmaply)
# Before the first time using this code you may need to first run:
# webshot::install_phantomjs()
heatmaply(mtcars, file = "folder/heatmaply_plot.png")
browseURL("folder/heatmaply_plot.png")

Replacing d3heatmap with heatmaply

The package d3heatmap (https://github.com/talgalili/d3heatmap) is no not actively maintained.

If users are interested in replacing their d3heatmap functions, this is easily done with heatmaply:

  • Function calls d3heatmap::d3heatmap() can be replaced with heatmaply::heatmaply()
  • Users of d3heatmap for shiny applications can use the following functions:
    • d3heatmap::d3heatmapOutput() can be replaced with plotly::plotlyOutput()
    • d3heatmap::renderD3heatmap() can be replaced with plotly::renderPlotly()

Acknowledgements

This package is thanks to the amazing work done by MANY people in the open source community. Beyond the many people working on the pipeline of R, thanks should go to the people working on ggplot2 (Hadley Wickham, etc.) and plotly (Carson Sievert, etc.). Also, many of the design elements were inspired by the work done on heatmap, heatmap.2 and d3heatmap, so special thanks goes to the R core team, Gregory R. Warnes, and Joe Cheng from RStudio. The dendrogram side of the package is based on the work in dendextend, in which special thanks should go to Andrie de Vries for his original work on bringing dendrograms to ggplot2 (which evolved into the richer ggdend objects, as implemented in dendextend).

The work on heatmaply was done by Tal Galili, Alan O'Callaghan, and Jonathan Sidi (mostly on shinyHeatmaply).

Funding: This work was supported in part by the European Union Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) under grant agreement no. 604102 (Human Brain Project).

Use the post function to upload a local plot to the Plotly cloud:

> my_plot  = plot([scatter(y=[1,2])])
> remote_plot = post(my_plot)
Plotly.RemotePlot(URI(https://plot.ly/~malmaud/73))

Visiting https://plot.ly/~malmaud/73 in a browser will show the plot.

Download a plot from the cloud

Use the download function with a remote plot object to download a plot stored on the Plotly cloud to a local Plot object:

local_plot = download(RemotePlot("https://plot.ly/~malmaud/73"))
# or equivalently, local_plot = download_plot("https://plot.ly/~malmaud/73")

Working with plotlyjs() backend of Plots.jl

A plot created by Plots.jl with plotlyjs() backend has the type Plot{Plots.PlotlyJSBackend()}. To use the Plotly.jl interfeces, the plot object needs to be converted by

my_plot = Plots.plotlyjs_syncplot(plots_plot)

The object my_plot can be handed to the Cloud API descrived above.

Acknowledgements

Plotly.js: Open-source JavaScript charting library behind Plotly, Dash

Plotly.js is a standalone Javascript data visualization library, and it also powers the Python and R modules named plotly in those respective ecosystems (referred to as Plotly.py and Plotly.R).

Plotly.js can be used to produce dozens of chart types and visualizations, including statistical charts, 3D graphs, scientific charts, SVG and tile maps, financial charts and more.

 

Contact us for Plotly.js consulting, dashboard development, application integration, and feature additions.


Load as a node module

Install a ready-to-use distributed bundle

npm i --save plotly.js-dist-min

and use import or require in node.js

// ES6 module
import Plotly from 'plotly.js-dist-min'

// CommonJS
var Plotly = require('plotly.js-dist-min')

You may also consider using plotly.js-dist if you prefer using an unminified package.


Load via script tag

The script HTML element

In the examples below Plotly object is added to the window scope by script. The newPlot method is then used to draw an interactive figure as described by data and layout into the desired div here named gd. As demonstrated in the example above basic knowledge of html and JSON syntax is enough to get started i.e. with/without JavaScript! To learn and build more with plotly.js please visit plotly.js documentation.

<head>
    <script src="https://cdn.plot.ly/plotly-2.12.1.min.js"></script>
</head>
<body>
    <div id="gd"></div>

    <script>
        Plotly.newPlot("gd", /* JSON object */ {
            "data": [{ "y": [1, 2, 3] }],
            "layout": { "width": 600, "height": 400}
        })
    </script>
</body>

Alternatively you may consider using native ES6 import in the script tag.

<script type="module">
    import "https://cdn.plot.ly/plotly-2.12.1.min.js"
    Plotly.newPlot("gd", [{ y: [1, 2, 3] }])
</script>

Fastly supports Plotly.js with free CDN service. Read more at https://www.fastly.com/open-source.

Un-minified versions are also available on CDN

While non-minified source files may contain characters outside UTF-8, it is recommended that you specify the charset when loading those bundles.

<script src="https://cdn.plot.ly/plotly-2.12.1.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

Please note that as of v2 the "plotly-latest" outputs (e.g. https://cdn.plot.ly/plotly-latest.min.js) will no longer be updated on the CDN, and will stay at the last v1 patch v1.58.5. Therefore, to use the CDN with plotly.js v2 and higher, you must specify an exact plotly.js version.

MathJax

You could load either version two or version three of MathJax files, for example:

<script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/mathjax/2.7.5/MathJax.js?config=TeX-AMS-MML_SVG.js"></script>
<script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/mathjax@3.2.2/es5/tex-svg.js"></script>

When using MathJax version 3, it is also possible to use chtml output on the other parts of the page in addition to svg output for the plotly graph. Please refer to devtools/test_dashboard/index-mathjax3chtml.html to see an example.

Bundles

There are two kinds of plotly.js bundles:

  1. Complete and partial official bundles that are distributed to npm and the CDN, described in the dist README.
  2. Custom bundles you can create yourself to optimize the size of bundle depending on your needs. Please visit CUSTOM_BUNDLE for more information.

Alternative ways to load and build plotly.js

If your library needs to bundle or directly load plotly.js/lib/index.js or parts of its modules similar to index-basic in some other way than via an official or a custom bundle, or in case you want to tweak the default build configurations of browserify or webpack, etc. then please visit BUILDING.md.

How to Build Interactive Charts with Plotly and Python

Data Visualization with Python

Data Visualization is one of the indispensable topic in Data Science and Machine learning. It is process of creating interactive visuals to understand trends, variations, and derive meaningful insights from the data. We all know that Data is the new oil. Likewise if oil is not processed it is of no use and to derive relevant insights from data for making critical business decisions, it should be in cleaned and processed.

Data visualization make this task little bit more handy and fast. With the help of visual charts and graph, we can easily find out the outliers, nulls, random values, distinct records, the format of dates, sensibility of spatial data, and string and character encoding and much more.

In this learning course, you will be learning different charts to represent different kind of data like categorical, numerical, spatial, textual and much more.

  • Bar Charts (Horizontal and Vertical)
  • Line Charts
  • Pie Charts
  • Donut Charts
  • Scatter Charts
  • Grouped Bar Chart (Horizontal and Vertical)
  • Segmented Bar Chart (Horizontal and Vertical)
  • Time and series Chart
  • Sunburst Chart
  • Candlestick Chart
  • OHLC Charts
  • Bubble Charts
  • Dot Charts
  • Multiple Line Charts and so on.

Most of the time data scientists pay little attention to graphs and focuses only on the numerical calculations which at times can be misleading. Data visualization is much crucial step to follow to achieve goals either in Data Analytics or Data Science to get meaningful insights or in machine learning to build accurate model.
