Plotly, an online service for creating and sharing data visualizations, wants to make graphics easy. Users can import data from Excel, CSV, TSV, MATLAB, ACCESS, and Goggle Drive spreadsheets. From there, they can easily visualize data as a line graph, scatter plot, area chart, bar chart, histogram, box plot, or heat map. Personalization is also largely intuitive, including changing colors, moving X and Y axes, and many other possibilities. Since the service is online, sharing with other team members is as simple as clicking a tab. Interestingly, Plotly also provides some relatively powerful statistical analysis software that allows readers to do everything from descriptive statistics up to ANOVAs, T-tests, and Chi-squared tests. Sign up for the site is free and easy. For readers who are looking for new, simple, beautiful ways to visualize data, Plotly might be just the thing.
