Chart Tamer lets you create better Excel Charts, it aligns Excel's charts with the best practices of data visualization.
No other software comes close to Microsoft Excel in popularity for analyzing and presenting quantitative information.
The charts in Excel, which provide Excel's visual analysis and presentation functionality, however, are confusing,
inadequate, and sometimes poorly designed. In some respects this problem actually increased with the release of Excel
2007, because it did little for charts other than add superficial dazzle - visual effects that actually undermine a chart's
ability to display information effectively.
Chart Tamer tames Excel's charts, which seem to exhibit Microsoft's belief that "more is better", by bringing them into
line with the data presentation philosophy that "simple is better." We don't need more choices - we need a few good choices
that really work.
