Ratings let you assess a visualisation according to:
Impact: How much a visualisation makes you take notice of it
Accuracy: How well it portrays the true data behind it
Rate visualisations according to your own impressions and expertise. We also ask you to let us know how you
rate your own level of expertise in terms of data and visualisation, so that we can filter ratings further
This is an interactive visualisation that allows the ranked display of information for most countries in the world on three dimensions: health, living standard and education. The data displayed is available through the United Nations Development Programme and goes from 2003 to 2008.
The user can select the country she is interested in, the relevant dimension and highlight other countries' position along the ordering. It also gives the user the chance of making a donation.

Some combination charts, such as bar and line charts, can be created in standard applications such as Excel (using more than one axis). Others can be combined by saving visualisations as image files and combining in an image editor.
There are several commercial tools for developing Dashboards, including Tableau. Some types of dashboard can be created in Excel, see the Microsoft Office site and Charts blog.
