ChartsBin is an easy to use web tool that allows anyone to create interactive visualizations of data and share them via websites, blogs, Facebook, or Twitter. Users must register, at no charge, to create charts (bar, line, and pie) and maps (world, country, and smaller administrative divisions). Once registered, users will land on the dashboard, or ChartsBin’s VizBuilder, which provides access to any previously created visualizations and datasets and the tools to create new datasets and to manage groups. The dashboard also offers things to try and a collection of tutorials. A good introduction to VizBuilder is ChartsBin Basic Tutorial (8:52) NOTE: The audio for this tutorial is low volume. ChartsBin will make a good tool for grade 4-12 (younger students will require help) math, science, social studies, and any other class in which students or teachers want to visualize data.

In addition, ChartsBin has a library of existing visualizations under the headings: country info, drugs & crime, environment, economic, food & agriculture, health, social, and society. For example, Country Income Groups (World Bank Classification) illustrates worldwide differences inpersonal income for 2016 on a color-coded world map. Orange Yield by Country compares orange yield by country using orange circles whose relative size represents the yield. This map can be enlarged to reveal greater detail. A bar chart presents The World's 100 Most Powerful Women in eight categories: billionaires, business, celebrity, finance, media, philanthropy and intergovernmental organizations, politics and technology.
