With its wide range of different forms data visualizing the tool has it all. Its product that I’m most satisfied with is the ability to visualize data through interactable maps. I can recommend this tool for basically anyone.

The Good…

It’s so easy to use. First of all, their free subscription gives access to visualizing whatever with no limit. As explained, my most liked element is the ability to create maps with data. Very helpful.

The Bad…
