Free online graphing app that plays well with Excel?
November 22, 2011 2:23 PM   Subscribe

Asking for a colleague: "Back in October 2008, I found a free online app that uploaded data from Excel and produced (very pretty) charts and graphs. Unfortunately, I didn’t keep track of the website, and I’m having trouble tracking it down again. Most of the free graphing apps I’ve found online today require that you manually input the data; I’m looking for something that will more easily upload a set of data from Excel."

Maybe you're thinking of IBM's Many Eyes?

Take a look at this online implementation of R's ggplot2 package.

Also take a look at tableau. They have a free version.

Thanks for the answers, everyone. I'm waiting to hear back if any of these is it, but Thanksgiving may get in the way.

Sorry for the delayed response, but my colleague just informed me that Many Eyes it is. Thanks, thisjax and everyone else too.
