Try Cell Styling

Customizing the appearance of individual cells in your table is a powerful tool for improving data visualization. With Infogram's interactive tables, you can effortlessly style cells to highlight important information.

Adjust text and fill colors to create visual cues that draw attention to specific data points.

Customize font size and style to ensure readability and consistency throughout your table.

Align text both horizontally and vertically for optimal presentation, and apply styling options such as bold, italic, underline, or strikethrough to emphasize or differentiate data.

Cell styling not only enhances the aesthetics of your table but also plays a crucial role in conveying your data's message effectively.

Customize Table Elements and Properties

Infogram's interactive tables offer versatile options for customizing various table elements and properties to enhance user experience and data exploration.

Freeze row and column headers to keep them visible while navigating large datasets, ensuring context and reference remain intact.

Enable data sorting, which empowers viewers to arrange information by value or alphabetically, making it easier to analyze and draw insights.

The search bar feature simplifies data discovery by allowing users to quickly find specific content within the table, saving time and effort.

Additionally, the ability to adjust image height within cells provides greater flexibility in presenting your data, ensuring that images and icons seamlessly integrate into your visualization.

Insert Images and Icons

Infogram's interactive tables provide an invaluable feature for enriching your data presentation by allowing you to insert images and icons directly into cells. This capability transcends traditional tables, making your data not only informative but also visually engaging. Enhance the storytelling aspect of your project by incorporating relevant visuals alongside textual data.

Whether you're displaying product images, logos, or icons representing different categories, the ability to include images and icons directly in the table cells brings your data to life, making it more compelling and easier for users to grasp.

Change Table Colors

The color scheme of your table can significantly impact its visual appeal and readability. Infogram's interactive tables give you the freedom to modify table colors, including rows, icons, and headers, all of which can be crucial for branding or storytelling purposes.

By default, the stripe table setting alternates colors for every second row, enhancing data readability. You can easily disable this option or customize cell and alternate cell text colors, as well as background fill colors, to match your project's aesthetic or branding guidelines.

The ability to control colors in your table helps ensure that your data visualizations are not only informative but also visually appealing and on-brand.

Try Table Column Header Editing Features

Customizing table column headers is crucial for achieving a polished and professional appearance in your data visualizations. Infogram's interactive tables offer a range of advanced editing features for table headers, allowing you to tailor them precisely to your needs.

Adjust font sizes to emphasize specific columns or create uniformity across your tables.

Customize text alignment for a consistent and visually appealing layout, whether you prefer left-aligned, right-aligned, or centered headers.

Experiment with text direction modification to break away from traditional table designs, rotating headers as needed to achieve unique and creative layouts.

The alignment enhancement feature further refines your table's appearance by allowing independent alignment of header text in relation to the content within the columns, ensuring a cohesive and sophisticated presentation.

When to use interactive tables?

When choosing how to share your data in an engaging and interactive way, be aware of the benefits of using tables versus charts. Tables are typically used to communicate with our verbal system, while charts interact with our visual systems. Tables require a bit more reading than charts, so it is recommended that they are used in formats where text limits aren’t a concern (presentations, reports, or ebooks). If your audience is engaging with your content on a smartphone or tablet, be careful using a table with a lot of text and data points, as it could be too hard to read in that format. Data visualization expert Stephen Few suggests you use tables in the following scenarios:

  • The display will be used to look up individual values.
  • It will be used to compare individual values but not entire series of values to one another.
  • Precise values are required.
  • Both summary and detail values are included.

Infogram’s interactive tables help your audience draw better conclusions as they search and sort through data. You can also add icons, images, and flags to cells to create more engaging content.

What are the scenarios or situations in which I should consider integrating interactive tables into my data visualization project?
  • Data Exploration: When your audience needs the ability to explore and interact with detailed data points within your visualization. Interactive tables allow users to sort, filter, and search for specific information.
  • Comparative Analysis: If your project involves comparing multiple data sets or variables, interactive tables can help users easily compare values side by side, facilitating better insights.
  • Data Detail Display: When you have a large dataset with intricate details, interactive tables are a great choice for displaying this information efficiently, avoiding clutter and confusion.
  • User Engagement: Interactive elements like tables can enhance user engagement by allowing your audience to actively participate in the data exploration process, making your visualization more compelling.
  • Responsive Design: If you want your data visualization to be accessible and functional across various devices and screen sizes, interactive tables can adapt well to responsive design principles.
  • Data Updates: When your data is dynamic and frequently updated, interactive tables can streamline the process of keeping your visualization current and accurate.
  • Data-Driven Decision-Making: Interactive tables empower users to make data-driven decisions by providing them with the tools to manipulate and analyze the data according to their needs.

How do I create a table?

  3. Upload or copy and paste your data.
  4. Customize the table layout and style (add icons, or change fonts and colors).

  5. Consider removing gridlines to increase readability.
  6. Always include the source(s) of your data.
  7. Arrange your data into groups whenever applicable.
  8. Information should have a clear sequence (e.g., Q2 after Q1).
  9. If you want to display ratios, they should appear after the value they represent.
  10. If you show aggregated values, visually separate them from the rest of the data.
  11. Use a subtle fill color to help the reader scan your table more easily.
  12. Numbers should be aligned to the right to make it easier to compare. Text can be aligned left, but you might prefer to center it for readability.
  13. Use color or formatting to draw the viewer to specific values (cells) in your table.

Icons are a great way to visualize ideas and compare different variables. Now you really can compare apples, oranges, and bananas!To use different icons in the pictorial charts:

  1. Click to select your chart.
  2. Expand the Icons tab in the right sidebar.

From there, you can change icons for each of your data categories (represented by rows in your chart's data table).

  • Facts & figures and Centered fact and figure: Both elements are text-based charts with icons. Best used to highlight interesting facts.
  • Table chart: A great option for displaying data with both textual and numeric columns.
