Welcome to FlowingData’s First Sponsor

Posted to Site News  |  Nathan Yau

Some of you might have noticed that FlowingData has a new sponsor in the sidebar. It’s Eye-Sys, an impressive visualization tool that aims to make complex data easy to understand. It serves a wide variety of data audiences with capabilities in traditional statistical visualization, GIS, and scientific visualization. Eye-Sys sports a drag and drop user interface that lets you hook visualization into data from both text files or databases. No need for programming. There’s a lot of cool stuff in their galleries, so I urge you check them out, if just to look at pretty pictures.

On another note, keep an eye out for another FlowingData contest in the near future. Thanks, Eye-Sys!
