Create beautiful charts with Datawrapper

Try it for yourself, without signing up:

We prepared some charts for you to play around with.

No need to sign up – just start charting.

Line charts are great to show developments over time. They're especially helpful when labeled directly, like the country labels on the chart to the right.

Of course you can create normal bar & column charts with Datawrapper, but we want to show off a bit. Our stacked bar charts are interactive – try to hover over either the bars or the color key. Neat, hm?

Unloved by some, we still think that donut & pie charts are unbeatable when you want to show shares of a whole. With Datawrapper, create simple donuts & pies – or small multiples; showing little pies next to each other like in the example to the right.

Scatterplots are great to show the correlation between two (or more!) variables. Like between ice cream consumption and happiness. Or between Datawrapper usage and beautiful charts. Hans Rosling from Gapminder became famous with this kind of chart (watch this 2007 TED talk to get convinced!), showing long-term global developments.

Here's where it gets fancy. Range plots are great to show the difference between two variables. It's a space-efficient alternative to showing grouped bar charts.

You're in good company.

Employees at publications like BuzzFeed News, The Guardian, Vox or the World Economic Forum build charts with Datawrapper. Here are three examples:
