The VisiData developers describe it as "an interactive multitool for tabular data." It is designed to help users quickly explore, summarize, and analyze data. VisiData is able to read data from CSV files, Excel spreadsheets, a variety of SQL databases, and a number of other file types. A full list can be located in the Compatible Filetypes section of the VisiData documentation. The VisiData In 60 Seconds section (found under the "Intro to VisiData tutorial" link on the Docs page of the Visidata site) walks the user through a quick analysis on US FAA data describing aircraft/wildlife collisions. Detailed instructions for more involved analysis procedures are provided in subsequent sections of the manual. At the deep end of the pool, users can extend VisiData with new capabilities by writing plugins in Python. The Install page on the Visidata site provides directions to install the resource on Windows, macOS, and several distributions of Linux.
