Detailed charts make it easier for people to understand large data sets. However, the idea of creating extensive charts from scratch usually scares people off. ChartBlocks is a DIY solution that provides a simplified way for anyone to build and share custom data charts online.
Designing a chart with ChartBlocks boils down to a three-step process. Import your data into ChartBlocks’s web-based platform. (ChartBlocks accepts spreadsheets, databases, and live feeds, among many other sources.) Once your data has been imported, you can design your chart using ChartBlocks’s chart building wizard. The wizard allows you to control nearly every aspect of your chart, customizing things like the look and design to fit your own aesthetics and company branding. When your chart is complete and ready to share, grab the embed code that ChartBlocks provides and share your chart immediately on social media or by embedding it on your own website.
ChartBlocks gives its users the freedom to decide which types of charts they want to create—pie, area, line, or stacked bar charts are the most common—as well as how they want to share those charts online. ChartBlocks also provides support for users who want to prevent their charts from going public, which is useful for people who are planning to use ChartBlocks for business or professional purposes.
