Graph data for my website

  1. Jun 9, 2010 #1
    Hello there,

    I am wondering if any of you guys could help me out.I am getting a website designed to run in conjunction with an iphone app.Some of the data that will be collected will be

    1)Sex (M/F)
    3)Time of purchase

    I would like to show this data to people in a way that is appealing to look at and is functionally sound.Would anyone here know the best way to graphically show this data.When you click on "sex" it will show the spread of users in terms of male/female,when u click on "Age" it would show the spread of ages of the users of the app and when you click time it will show the time of purchase(nearest hour would do).

    If anybody could show me examples/software of how this would look like and that is really appealing to look at, on a website.I don't want it in excel as that doesn't have the right look that I am going for on the website.

    I know very little about computing and want to give the Indian developers of the app/website some examples of what I would like to see on my website.

    Any help and examples would be greatly appreciated.

    I've seen a open source Flash kit that does what you're asking. Let me see if I can find it.

    OK, it's called Open Flash Chart

    I believe all that needs modified is an XML file, Flash itself, it's needed (I'm assuing that the .swf file is already compiled).

    There is also something called Fusion Charts, which has both free and pay-for services.

    Good luck,
