Saving and sharing visualizations

Chart-builder visualizations on data.world can be saved in a number of json, image, and html formats shown under the Download button:

There are also a variety of options for sharing your visualization on data.world:

Selecting Share > Insight lets you add your visualization to any project on data.world for which you have permission. To share the insight you are prompted to chose a project where you will share it, to give it a title, and optionally to add comments. The final option (selected by default) is to save the visualization as a Vega-Lite source file on the project.

Share > File lets you add the visualization to any dataset or project for which you have permission. Share > Markdown Embed (Comment) you can embed your chart in any place which uses Markdown (e.g., insights, comments, summaries). By default the embedded chart will be a static rendering of the data from when the visualization was created. However using the Vega-Lite Editor you can create a 'live' chart that updates as the data on which it's based updates. The shark attack dataset is an example of continually-updating data.

To make a chart 'live', go to the Vega-Lite Editor and scroll down to the section referencing the "data" parameters:

Under the "data" element replace "source" with "url" and add a hardcoded url for the query that drives the visualization (you get this in the workspace while viewing the query), and add a "format" element with the type "csv":

Then when you select Share > Markdown Embed (Comment), you'll get Markdown text for a live version of the visualization that you can copy and paste into Insights, Comments, and Summaries on data.world:

Here is an example of the live visualization above used as an insight on a project that uses the dataset:

Finally, if you want to share a link to the Chart Builder screen for the visualization so someone else can edit and run it, you can do so with the Share > URL option:
