How to choose the software package that best meets your visualization needs

Oftentimes I get asked what program a user should purchase to display his or her geochemical data, geophysical data, or other industry-specific data type. The answer I give is that it's less about the type of data you have, than how the data is formatted, and what output you'd like to get from it. To that end, I've created the following flow chart ...

Sounds great huh? If your neighborhood school is ranked poorly or just doesn’t suit you, you can pick another. But here’s the catch: while the registration deadline for your neighborhood school is typically sometime in August (just before the beginning of the school year), the registration deadline for a non-neighborhood school is sometime in January, and acceptance is determined by a lottery process which is subject to available space.

I found a gold-mine of data at the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Bureau of Transportation Statistics, and plotted up a few graphs and maps from data that I found interesting.
