Tabula: Very nice utility to extract data from a PDF table: Just upload the PDF file, highlight the table you want to extract, you’ll get a preview, and download the data in CSV format. Pretty cool!
Really like that map. Maplecraft came out with a bunch of interesting maps. Wonder how they assemble and compute these different layers, for which normally such high-resolution data are not available.
Interesting, very interactive site of automatic information collection/harvesting on specific environmental topics or keywords. The engine behind runs through all major social platforms and collects information and puts it into the right perspective, respectively inserts it into its larger database for connecting the dots (that is, the environmental themes, keywords, products).
Gapminder is a great tool. Doesn’t work with lots of combinations of data. But how to translate this into static images? Here is a nice example.
Sehr nützlich, eine kostenlose Bilddatenbank, Pixelio.
Interesting website which “tracks” the impact on biodiversity loss through consumption.
Really nice tool to turn JSON into a readable format. Great!
Interesting application which can bridge a bit the space between Excel data and Illustrator visualization work.
Nice example of an attractive and both visual and textual display of indicators.
Nice evolution from a standard (and as such published) Excel chart to a nice, innovative looking one (although perhaps a bit more challenging to read).
Nice way of showing how much time and effort goes when into a website design.
Say, you have “300″ and “-300″ as two values and want to calculate the percentage change between them. With the formula
"=(A2 - B2) / ABS(B2)"
it’ll do it.
It’s not really an editing tool. But it can be used a bit as such. And you can read really big files (several GB large) with it. Really helpful. HexFind.
