Swivel allows users to upload data - any data - and display it to other users visually. There are a number of features that can be used with the data that make Swivel much more exciting than a spreadsheet. Using the Explore feature you can search and sort graphs and data and save items for later. When you’re done exploring you can compare relevant or irrelevant data. Ever wonder how closely crime and poverty are related? Correlation meters will show you just how much of a relationship there is. If you feel like doing some lazy research you can compare suggested data that Swivel provides. Once you’ve realized you’re on to something, it’s time to share it. Swivel makes it easy to blog and e-mail your findings and track how many times people have viewed and clicked on your graphs.
All of these features as well as the ability to rate, discuss and tag graphs make Swivel an excellent resource to examine data.
