Frequently Asked Questions
A growing list of questions and answers from our budding community.
What can I do with the charts on this site?
You can peek at them to answer a quick question you have or for quick confirmation. You can download them and re-use them in any way you want (email, blog, newsletter, powerpoint presentation, document, etc). You can use them to check against your own charts. Lastly maybe you can get ideas for other types of data visualizations and\or data sources that you want to learn or use in the future.
Can I search for different charts?
We don't have a search bar yet, for now Google is our search bar. We are adding more charts every day and once we have added 5000 charts we will put up a simple search bar. Sadly we probably do not have the chart you are looking for at this exact moment but tell us about it and we will make sure it happens.
What format are your charts when I download them?
Right now most of them are available as SVG format which is very flexible if you want to resize. Over time we will add the most common image formats (png, jpeg, gif, etc).
How did we make these charts?
We are huge fans of QuickChart and rely on this service to generate all of our stock images. QuickChart uses Chart.js under the hood.
What if I don't like the colors of a chart?
We are working on that, but in the meantime open to suggestions for additional color pallettes!
Why does Dealcharts.org exist?
A few reasons. We enjoy connecting consumers of data to producers of data. We believe data should be more accessible in our target industries (Capital Markets, Real Estate, Alternative Data and Venture Capital) and that folks should compete on what they do with data, not access to data. Dealcharts.org is a vehicle to explore and engage around some out of the box ideas and techniques a few of which might work while many others won't. Lastly, everything on the internet is a funnel and this site may unlock opportunities to build custom data pipelines for firms with very specific ambitions.
How can I contribute?
Dealcharts.org is calling for partners and collaborators of all kinds (creators, consumers, etc). We are working on a new page that outlines all the ways; stay tuned!
