Love charts? Hate making them? I have an easy and free solution for you.

Datawrapper — an open source tool that allows you to create simple, accurate, and embeddable charts in minutes.

You can use their free hosted service or install it on your server. Then modify and extend it as you see fit.

This will reduce the time needed to create a useful chart, and embedding it into any website takes seconds. Datawrapper makes charting easy (entering data is just a copy and paste from Excel), and helps you avoid common pitfalls.

Even better, you can customize fonts, colors, design to match your brand. Get started here.
