Some of my favorite Data Visualization Resources with more information on them

Of course, wikipedia has a great collection of resources for data visualization.
For me data visualization is more like how can I get data represented in a graph in such a way as to communicate easily what the information is supposed to show.
The other thing is to be able to analyze things that have a lot of variables in them in a fast way so as to derive conclusions about the data that prove to be useful.

Pure .net 2.0 Data Visualization Component for Professional Developers

Just imagine that you speed along the autobahn and realize that there is no a control panel – you don’t know a fuel level, speed – anything… “It is impossible”, you may say. And now imagine, your business is a car and you drive that car without a control panel, and you don’t see the key performance indicators which are vital to “drive” your business. It’s just a nightmare!

Similarly to the control panel in a car which helps you to get to destination, an effective digital dashboard helps you make mission critical decisions on the basis of well-structured visually presented information.

With the release of the Instrumentation ModelKit 3.0 the creation of digital dashboards, KPI, scorecards, and other data visualization applications becomes much easier.

Developed for Other Developers
The Instrumentation ModelKit is designed not only to serve as a rich library of ready-made controls: the delivery package includes 80+ instruments. It allows developers to build custom gauges even without the need to code. An intuitive designer makes the process of gauges creation and adjustment a brief! It is very important for a developer to have control over the created instrument. Assign custom style, behavior and appearance to the instrument with a few mouse clicks!

Changes for Improvement
Contemporary technology is aimed at the application development streamlining. Trying to follow the newest technology trends we created version 3.0 of the Instrumentation ModelKit that is specially redesigned for .NET 2.0 and supports the whole .NET 2.0 functionality. We modified the designer. Now the properties are available not only in the property grid but also from the designer toolbar. Fill editor can also be invoked by clicking an appropriate button. Improved visual interface of the designer ensures an automatic layout of the localized interface elements. These new features considerably speed up the process of gauges design.

We Do It for You
We want to help developers be as productive as possible.
To make the process of application development convenient we made it possible to change instruments appearance and behavior with a few mouse clicks. Modify, customize and adjust controls according to your demands!
To make the process of the product exploration fast we designed the unified sample browser which provides a set of comprehensive examples demonstrating the required functionality of controls.
To make the process of complex gauges development simple we included such high-level elements as RangedLevel, LinearLevel, Tank, etc.
To help you create visually stunning applications we developed a great number of features to make controls realistic: support for 3D skins, double buffering, ability to set interactive behavior to the controls, and GDI+ capabilities for elements drawing.
To make you save your money we pursue flexible licensing policy and allow you to distribute your applications with the use of the Instrumentation ModelKit components without any additional charges.
To give you full control over your applications we offer Professional edition of the product which contains full source code.

The Instrumentation ModelKit 3.0 will help you realize your potential and create professional data visualization applications.
