FAQ

What is FACTGRAPHS?

FACTGRAPHS creates high quality embeddable data visualizations for free use by bloggers, educators, independent media, nonprofits and researchers.

Why?

It's easier to show the facts with an interactive graph.

So?

It never hurts to have the facts. And maybe it helps.

Can FACTGRAPHS create graphics for me/us?

Are you a researcher? Or a nonprofit? Sure.

We're an independent newspaper

Welcome.

We're on one side, not the other

Cool.

We're on the other side

Excellent.

We're neutral

That's great. Factgraphs are too. Facts are facts, for left, right or center.

What do we need?

Just some verifiable data: e.g., from research organizations; from published research databases; from databases maintained by governments and non-governmental agencies. Stuff that can be tracked down by an adventurous reader.

How about my own data?

If it can be verified.

Verified?

Yes. Unpublished data would have to be verifiable, transparent, comfortable in sunlight. Has it undergone formal peer review? Will you post the raw data?

Do I have exclusive rights to my graphic?

Everything produced by FACTGRAPHS is posted online and can be used by anyone, with attribution. Actually, the attribution is baked into the graphic.

Can I embed a visualization?

In your web publication? Yes. Click the info icon on any graphic.

Any search tips?

Search using the PLURAL form of your search term (e.g., 'dogs' not 'dog', 'chemical weapons', 'refugees'). Then try the singular if that doesn't work. Use the 'tags' page, and the maps.

Motto?

FACTGRAPHS. The verifiable truth.
