Abstract

A survey has been conducted here to investigate the state-of-the-art of data visualization tools for web applications. There are hundreds of well-developed data visualization tools, many others are under development, and a survey can help to make an informed choice for the more appropriate software to be used, when starting websites for different topics: open data, smart city platforms, illustrated statistics or data analytics on specific issues. In this report, the main goals of data visualization are described, as well as the main types of charts. A selection of software tools is briefly outlined, with a focus on free license tools. Moreover, some examples of websites are reported, showing the opportunities of data visualization tools in different contexts.
