Motion Charts in Google Spreadsheets

October 16, 2008

Slightly old news, but anyway …

Motion Charts are now available in Google Spreadsheets.

These were originally made famous by Hans Rosling.  If you haven’t seen his TED talks, look them up.

This seems like a solution itching for a good problem.  

These charts can easily handle five dimensions of data: x-axis, y-axis, bubble size and bubble colour + time scale.

Does anybody have an interesting and available data set like that which we could all use to play with?

Bonus points for NZ data. 🙂
