Posted to Sponsors  |  Nathan Yau

FlowingData continues to grow, and FlowingData sponsors continue to help keep everything running smoothly. No doubt the site would be down a whole lot without them – especially with all the traffic bursts lately. Thank you, FlowingData sponsors:

Tableau Software — Data exploration and visual analytics software to understand your databases and spreadsheets.

Eye-Sys — Visualization tool that lets you easily link large amounts of data from many sources in real-time.

If you’re interested in becoming a FlowingData sponsor, please feel free to email me, and I’ll get back to you with the details.
