Plot.ly a new online Graph Tool

Plot.ly is a new site that allows for web-based plotting of graphs. The site allows a user to upload data, create a number of plots, and even write python code to generate custom graphs. Then the site has numerous export options for the graphs as well as options for sharing the graph via socia networks.

Below is an example graph via a sharable image link.

I have not had a lot of time to play around with the site, but it looks very impressive. I think there are a lot of possibilities for Plot.ly. First, I could see it used for data analysis in the cloud. Also, I could see it used for sharing plots between researchers or for publishing extra graphs to go along with publications.

Can you think of some other uses for Plot.ly?

D3.js Gallery Data

I believe Christophe Viau put this list together. It is a very impressive list of D3.js examples. Each example includes the graph and the code to generate it.

D3.js Gallery Data – temporarily in view mode – Google Docs.

A more interactive and visual view of the examples can be found at this new, not yet complete, D3 Gallery.
