This week’s resource up for discussion is a tool that transforms plain data into eye-catching visuals.
On the website, users upload a standardized set of data (like from an Excel spreadsheet) and can then inspect it from a variety of perspectives. You can browse the gallery of visuals created by users, but the real fun is uploading your own data (it takes about 15 minutes to go through the process) and seeing it in new ways.
Let us know what you did during your visit to Many Eyes. Is their website easy to understand and use? What did you think of existing visualizations? Did you upload your own data? Did you get any new ideas? What is lacking from this kind of visualization tool?
