i use wordpress.com to keep progress of my scientific work (tags and having it on the web is useful).
a lot of times i need to post a plot of data. the best solution that i came up with is to use gnuplot to make data and then post a png image. is there a better way where i can just post data and wordpress can do the plotting? there is a gnuplot plug in for wordpress.org. but i don’t think there is a way to use it here. may be it’s possible to embed excel or google docs?
WordPress does not have any sort of data plotting software built in, so going the PNG route is best. There might be something that could be done through scribd, but you would have to check it out as I have no idea if they support any of the doc types you can output.
