How does it work?

Simple import

Just drop in your spreadsheet files, or pull from Google Drive, Github or Dropbox. We can handle millions of rows, and if you want to import your data in real-time you can use our RESTful API.

Instant analysis

You'll be able to visually explore your data immediately, with clickable charts.

We’ll aggregate your data and create a default visualisation by mapping each dimension to an appropriate chart. For example, bubble charts are useful for displaying a large number of values in a small space, and maps are only suitable for geographic data.

We respect Tufte’s principles of information design - there’s no chartjunk, and a high data-to-ink ratio.

The scales of charts adjust automatically as you filter down the data.

Make it your own

You can re-design the visualisation, changing colour, layout, and text. If the charts that we’ve chosen aren’t appropriate, you can choose from a range of alternatives.

It’s also possible to change the way that we summarise your data - you can change the measure and choose from a number of aggregations including sum, average, standard deviation, min, max.

If you’re a developer, you can use our open-source toolkit on Github, allowing you to fully control the javascript and CSS.

Publish & share

Embed your interactive visualisations, by copying and pasting the embed code into your website. The visualisations will continue to be driven by the live data within Dataseed.


Dataseed looks great on tablet! Visualisations scale to adapt to the size of the screen, allowing you to easily zoom in and out to different levels of detail. It even works on smart-phone.


Datasets hosted with us can be kept private, and we can even set Dataseed up on your own hardware within a private network. Just ask

Open-data friendly

If you're an individual making your visualisations and datasets public, we won't charge you a penny.

For developers

Dataseed is 100% customisable. We provide a hosted back-end with analytics capabilities, a RESTful API, and open-source toolkit on github.
