How to turn everyone in your newsroom into a graphics editor

Along with the underlying charting library — called Gneisschart — the tool has given everyone in our worldwide newsroom 24-hour access to simple charts at graphics-desk quality. It has helped all of our reporters and editors become more responsible for their own content and less dependent on others with specialized graphics skills. The rise of Chartbuilder The project started as a tool for myself. Dismayed by some of the ugly, poorly cropped, off-brand, and illegible charts showing up on Quartz and frustrated by the amount of my own time it was taking to produce even the simplest charts in our style, I set out to make a tool that would allow me to support the charting needs of the newsroom without consuming all of my time.

Indiemapper - Free yourself from GIS. Essential Resources: Tools for collecting and handling data. This is part of a series of posts to share with readers a useful collection of some of the most important, effective and practical data visualisation-related resources.

Essential Resources: Tools for collecting and handling data

This post presents a collection of useful tools, resources and references for gathering, cleaning and preparing your data for analysis and design. Please note, I may not have personally used all the packages or tools presented but have seen sufficient evidence of their value from other sources. Whilst some inclusions may be contentious from a quality/best-practice perspective, they may still provide some good features and provide value to a certain audience out there. Finally, to avoid re-inventing the wheel, descriptive text may have been reproduced from the native websites if they provide the most articulate descriptions.

Your feedback is most welcome to help curate this collection, keep it up to date and preserve its claim to be an essential list of resources! Typeform. Adzebill Design. NodeBox. Visage - Create and Automate Beautiful Reports. Protovis. Protovis composes custom views of data with simple marks such as bars and dots.


Unlike low-level graphics libraries that quickly become tedious for visualization, Protovis defines marks through dynamic properties that encode data, allowing inheritance, scales and layouts to simplify construction. Protovis is free and open-source, provided under the BSD License. It uses JavaScript and SVG for web-native visualizations; no plugin required (though you will need a modern web browser)!

Although programming experience is helpful, Protovis is mostly declarative and designed to be learned by example. Protovis is no longer under active development.The final release of Protovis was v3.3.1 (4.7 MB). This project was led by Mike Bostock and Jeff Heer of the Stanford Visualization Group, with significant help from Vadim Ogievetsky. Updates June 28, 2011 - Protovis is no longer under active development. September 17, 2010 - Release 3.3 is available on GitHub.
