I created the above SVG using RAW which shows the steady decline in the popularity of M. Night Shyamalan’s filmography. It really was just a cut and paste of the data from the web, to excel and into RAW. RAW creates vector graphics (i.e. SVG) from spreadsheets (i.e. TSV). The app should have been called TSVG. I’ll make some calls.
It helps if you have used some of the graph types before to know how they work best with the source data. Maybe it will spur some people on to get to grips with D3 more.
