This webpage provides a list of useful tools for visualising data sets for those with and without coding skills. Most of the tools listed have basic, free accounts however the fact that usability is often greatly increased by monthly subscription fees is a drawback. However, the list does provide a good overview of what is available and it's likely that if you're looking for a simple way to represent your data, you'll find something useful - either by using the tools to create a visualisation, or simply looking through the examples to find inspiration to go off and create your own.
Northwestern University Knight Lab is a community of designers, developers, students, and educators working on experiments designed to push journalism into new spaces. Out of this collaboration have come a suite of tools for creating highly interactive, beautiful representations of data. The suite includes JuxtaposeJS, a tool for juxtaposing changes in two images over time, SoundciteJS, in which audio can be embedded into a paragraph of text, StorymapJS, a clean, annotated map interface for storytelling, and TimelineJS, a timeline creator which beautifully integrates audio-visual data into its interactive format.

Stephanie Evergreen (Evergreen Data) and Ann K. Emery have put together this handy checklist of best practice in creating strong, visually engaging graphs for data visualisation. It was specifically compiled with evaluation practitioners in mind and covers a range of areas such as the text, arrangement and colours in a graph.
