A quick way to get started is to upload the data to data.beta.nyc, and then use the OData endpoint in the Data API button for that dataset to connect to the free Tableau Public. No coding required
This was how the Link.NYC Explorer and the dotNYC Explorer was done:
If your data is not that big, and its geospatial in nature, I'd sign up for a free account with CartoDB.
With OpenRefine, you can take screenshots of the faceting panels on the left hand side when it summarizes data.
There are also code-free tools like plot.ly and Qlik, etc. that you may want to look into.
Only if none of these tools fulfill your requirement, will I bother to look into developing something...
