I would avoid using red and green colors together since it could be an issue for color blind viewers.

This is great. It's like a manifestation of perceptions. There are SO many. So many variables! WHEW! Good stuff. <3

hi Jeffrey Heer, is tableau provided it has roots in stanford using any of your chart codes? I am a consultant from India currently working on developing a competing product to tableau. I would like to know whether i can make use of your services? We have developed a platform for data sharing and collection and currently i am looking for chart library APIs for data visualization.

What about tools like R - is that a different category of software? Sorry if that's a basic question, I'm just trying to learn what's what.

Fantastic roundup  Protovis looks like a very promising library for our (hopefully) standards-based future.

Bryce, you mentioned Wordle. The authors mentioned it, too, in the interview accompanying the web version of the survey.

While mostly very interesting, I am surprised to see the graduated symbol map 3C and the cartogram 3D included. The graduated symbol map includes pie charts - something abandoned by Stephen Few in Show Me the Numbers because they communicate information poorly. Both pie charts and the round circles in the cartogram 3D would be rejected by him as effective based on the fact it is difficult for human visual perception to accurate assign quantitative vaues to 2D areas. But I'm glad to see you included my favourite chart of all time - Minard's Napoleonic invasion of Russia!
