Visual.ly is open to the public in beta. You no longer need expensive software, extensive design skills, or number crunching ability. Visualizations are powerful, but they’ve required time and hard work to create -- until now. Visual.ly has built a tool that will allow everyone to quickly and easily create professional quality designs with their own data.
They also have an extensive library of Infographics from magazines and publications from around the world. So if you are just exploring data visualisation or want somewhere to show off your new creation Visual.ly is perfect. This will be a big hit for both teachers and students. I cant wait to show this to my classes.
Here is one I create this morning in 1 minute. Not a great deal of info but I think you get the picture.
