Datawrapper:
A charting tool that's easy to learn & easy to use.

A simple 4-step process.

Creating a chart, map, or table is as easy as following four steps. We tell you what you need to do, one thing after another, until you hit the "Publish" button. No code required.

 step 1 in Datawrapper: upload your data

We don’t leave you alone.

During the chart creation process, you will find something we call “help balloons”: Little helpers that explain features and tell you how to use them best.

The only tool with an automated colorblind check.

You want everyone to understand your chart, so using colorblind safe colors is crucial. It's just hard to remember that. (We've been there.) That's why we check your colors direcly below each of your charts – so you don’t need to.

Learn more about our colorblind check on our blog.

Friends don’t let friends create bad charts.

Datawrapper makes it as easy as possible to build readable charts, maps and tables – no design skills required.

There are so many design rules to keep in mind when building graphics. So we take care of a good chunk of them for you. Our design defaults are based on years of experience in data visualization, which keeps your charts easy to understand.

It’s impossible in Datawrapper to create bar charts that don’t start at zero. Or to make axis ticks unreadably small. Or to turn off the north arrow in locator maps once the map gets rotated. We don’t even let our users create hard-to-read chart types like the radar chart.
