Beta-testing Chartle, the online graph/chart site

Looking to create charts, diagrams and other graphic visualizations of data on the fly? Give Chartle a spin.

Chartle (discovered via Lifehacker) provides a fairly simple and intuitive way to turn data into decent graphics that you can publish online with minimal tweaking. Here are couple I put together this morning based on Google Analytics data of this website.

Not bad.

Chartle does have its limitations, however. To create the pie chart, I had to first convert raw numbers into percentages. And if you’re not the best at math, and don’t want to create an Excel spreadsheet to do the work for you, then that could be a problem. Besides, if you’re going to go to the trouble of opening Excel, you may as well create the chart right there, right?

Chartle also allows you to make Venn diagrams and other types of charts.

The site is in “early Beta” testing and is looking for testers. No account or signup is required. Just go to chartle.net and start playing around with it.
