Users can combine different data sets in several ways and create their own custom rankings and color-coded maps of the US states. Already available maps include comparisons of obesity rates in children and how much is spent on their education (per capita), the most unhealthy states (cancer rate times infant mortality rate), or right brain versus left brain (or, in other words SAT Scores - Mathematics divided by SAT Scores - Reading).

As an additional feature, users are also able to add audio comments to the charts to convey the informational message more clearly. The interesting TechCrunch50 demonstration video featured below shows how the founders consider the iCharts portal to be: "The YouTube for interactive charts".

Timetric: Graphing and Sharing the Movements of Data over Time - The "Data Visualization 2.0" space happily occupied by services as Many Eyes, Swivel, iCharts, Trendrr, Widgenie, Track-n-Graph welcomes a new member: Timetric [timetric.com].
The web service aims to make it as easy to upload, represent and analyze time series data. Its unique feature, next to its minimalist design, consists of updating the graphs whenever the data they are based on are updated. Next to the ability to upload personal data, the website already contains a large (actually quite overwhelming) number of datasets, situated in the economic, social and environmental realms, such as ECB exchange rates: Euro vs. USD, UK crimes: theft or unauthorised taking of a pedal cycle or global average surface temperature anomaly.
