On Line Graphing
Not Everyone Has a Spreadsheet
I wrote an article about CoralLevang 's earnings and included graphs created using Excel spreadsheet.You can see those here and see Coral's original post here . After posting, I realised that not everyone has a spreadsheet and that while there are free downloadable programmes, they take a while to learn and while people might be interested in seeing a graph of their earnings (or anything else) they might not have the time to learn how to use a spreadsheet.
So I wondered whether there were any online graph programmes that would take your data and provide a graph for you. And there are several! - Who would have thunk it? I just searched for the term graph data in the search box and several possibilities came up. A number of them appeared to give the option for only one line to be shown but I needed two and this program gave the option for one, two or more columns of data. It's called online chart tool and it gives examples of the kind of data you can graph and then print out. You can also save it as a picture and email it direct from the program. Note: I did not put the labels on it. There are lots of colour options too. I did Coral's data as a stacked bar chart this time and did it the two ways I showed in my first post on this.
The graphs have come out very colourful and the colours can be changed. In terms of displaying data, I preferred the lines for this data but chose to use stacked bars to demonstrate the program. It was very easy to use the program, however, I have used spreadsheets a lot. If you know the basics of creating a graph, even by hand, you should have no problems with this program. ENJOY!
