IBM’s Collaborative User Experience research group has launched an interesting new online data visualization tool called Many Eyes. Inspite of the complicated looking output, the application is pretty simple to use as you just paste data into the site from an Excel document, pick a visual display format as see your results. From there the visualization is posted for what they describe as a “new social kind of data analysis” where people can view, rate, group and blog about it. In a culture where most data visualization consists on var charts in Powerpoint, this is a very accesible way into a much more powerful and engaging visualization format. I only wish there was some way to export the results off of the site to use in a PDF, Powerpoint or printed document.
