We have noticed that there are some growing number of websites which write about Big Data, cloud computing and spread wrong information to sell some others paid things. They can not write guides like how to install Spark, Elastic Search, Kibana. Here is list of open source big data visualization tools which will convert data in to graphs, charts usable with tools like Spark, Hadoop. Do not use paid stuffs unless you need specialised service. Payment is when hosting, management is included and things are available on GitHub, SourceForge.
Data analysis is a process of inspecting, cleansing, transforming, and modeling data with the goal of discovering useful information. Data mining is a particular data analysis technique that focuses on modeling rather than purely descriptive purposes. Predictive analytics focuses on application of statistical models for predictive forecasting or classification. Data integration is a precursor to data analysis. Data analysis is closely related to data visualization.
This article is not only about big data, but many of the tools can be used with any data, like server log files.Advertisement

We talked about how to install Apache Zeppelin. That Apache Zeppelin is itself for interpretation, data analysis. This is different set of tool. Apache Giraph is a special project :
Of course we have guide on How to Install, Configure Elasticsearch with Apache Hadoop, Kibana. You can understand -it means Kibana is another type of useful tool.
As human not always need continuous really visible graphing with real time update, the tools used are based on need and commonly just simple graphing tools used for other data. Of course it can be used other works.
Grafana is used for creating monitoring and metric analytics & dashboards for Graphite, InfluxDB, Prometheus etc.
Here are list of many important known tools for graphing :
Importance of this article is to provide a way to search with terminologies like “How to integrate d3.js with Apache Spark”, not all are used with all tools. Out of the most will not work, there is no common solution. You’ll really can get some good project related to your work by searching on Github, like :
Of course there are paid SaaS like service like that from IBM like companies. But using them is after understanding the basic technology and using them.
