For publishers of blogs and websites, a great and easy-to-use visualization tool is mygraphs.com. You can embed customized graphs that can be dynamically updated from an online interface. The benefit of not being static is that you can keep your articles evergreen without bugging your art department.
Even tech-challenged folks can use Piktochart’s service to easily create high-quality infographics. Your infographics can be customized and edited, and pricing starts at $29 per month.
Canva.com is an easy-to-use DIY web-based tool. I prefer tools that are web-based and that the least tech savvy person in my company could successfully use. Canva is point-and-click to stunning graphics. But for external projects, I prefer visual.ly. I love their global talent pool and marketplace.
Infogram is one of my favorite tools to create professional, well-designed infographics. The online tool is incredibly easy to use, and the final products always look fantastic thanks to the diverse and aesthetically pleasing templates they have. Infogram is a great, free alternative to other infographic tools, so you can seamlessly create and share insightful visualizations based on your data.
Picmonkey and Canva are perfect for the small business owner with limited resources and/or no graphic designer. Especially Canva, but youcan use the two in conjunction with one another to create very polished graphics.
We love the D3 framework here at RTS. It offers a variety of visually appealing options that transform data into attractive graphics that are easy to digest.
