Building a data visualization in WordPress

If you happen to be a WordPress user and want to embed a data visualization we have a really simple solution. Here’s how:

  1. Make sure you have registered your domain here: http://charts.factmint.comregister domain
  2. Install the Factmint Charts plugin for WordPress (you can just search for “factmint” from within WordPress on the “add new” plugins page)WP-plugin-search
  3. Activate the plugin
  4. Open a post or page
  5. Use one of the Factmint shortcodes, such as “factmint-scatter” to create a scatter graph
  6. Add CSV tabular data into the content of the shortcodeWP-editing-post

Here’s the chart on the site:


You can type the CSV data out by hand, if you want, or just save as CSV from a spreadsheet application (Google Sheets, MS Excel, etc) and copy and paste the file’s contents.
