Inspire Data 1.5

My first review of Inspiredata, some years before now, I discovered a tool which made data interesting. I felt short-changed on tools for handling science data (as opposed to everything else). It was easy to be enthralled by clever transitions between one type of graph and another even when the transition provided no new information. What’s lovely is that Inspiredata continues to improve. There’s a tool to gather data through an online survey; lots of types of plot  (Venn, stack, bar, pie and what’s called an axis plot); lots of ready made subject-specific databases; lesson plans, classroom projects, handouts, database templates and Inspuiredata can now display line of best fit.
