Visualization methods and tools: Powerful table

Many times we would have wondered when what table has to be used, what kind of diagram is appropriate for which situation. I came across an web page which gives a better perspective or answer to such question.

Periodic table of visualization methods

This page has categorization of the content by Data Visualization, Strategy Visualization, Information Visualization, Metaphor Visualization, Concept visualization and compound visualization.

Though there is no hardbound rules to follow the same, it gives overview of which would be ideal to use in such scenarios. Even this page gives the sample of those visualization when you mouseover the table.

I believe it would be a very useful tool for many.

Thanks.
