Google just released a tool where you can create your own data gifs.
With Data Gif Maker, you can visualize your data which show share of search interest for two competing topics.
“We typically use the tool to represent competing search interest, but it can show whatever you want it to—polling numbers, sales figures, movie ratings, etc.”
To use the tool, you need to enter two data points, add your text, choose your color and explanatory text and launch comparions. Then you can download your gif by using the button.
Google also gave two pro-tips:
Pro-tip #1: The high resolution download takes longer but it’s better quality for social sharing.
Pro-tip #2: Leave the window open on your desktop while it’s creating the gifs as it will do so quicker.
It seems that many content creators will get benefits from Google’s new tool.
What do you think data fans?
