Last year Quartz announced Atlas, which was a place to find all of their charts. Now they’re slowly opening up their platform, namely the chart-making tool, so that others can make charts and share their own data.
Why might you want to create charts with Atlas? It’s a chance to use our widely acclaimed charting tool, which makes it easy to visualize data in a simple, consistent, and mobile-friendly style. Every chart published on Atlas has its own page. You and others can share the chart, embed it elsewhere, grab an image, or download the underlying data.
It should be interesting to see where this goes. It reminds me a lot of Swivel from back in 2010, and that one didn’t fare so well.
