Import, Filter, Visualise And Publish Any Spreadsheet Online: Silk

Robin Good's curator insight, May 8, 5:03 AM



Silk is a web tool to publish online spreadsheet-based data on a specific topic.


The service, which just released a new version of its offering, allows to easily convert any existing data-set into professional-looking data displays, charts, grids, and lists that can be embedded on any site and which can be viewed in multiple ways.


The value of Silk is specifically in making it easy and immediate for anyone to elegantly display and publish data sets in one of several alternative formats which include:

  • Table 
  • List
  • Grid 
  • Mosaic
  • Groups
  • Bars
  • Map
  • Donut
  • Line
  • Pie
  • Scatter
  • Stacks 


How it works: Import a table from Excel, Google Sheets or any .csv file, select the fields you want to import and Silk does the rest offering you tools to filter, edit and select your preferred visualization approach.  


You can also create data sets and displays from scratch inside Silk, and set each Silk either as public or private.



Why it is relevant for content curators: Silk provides a unique and powerful opportunity to leverage existing data and information assets, spreadsheets and databases and to convert them into highly legible and visually impactful data displays on a very specific topic. 


My evaluation: Paired with the power of Kimonolabs or Import.io to convert any website or page content into a spreadsheet, it offers great potential in creating value by providing multiple professional formats to display, present and interact with such data.
Great tool for curating data-based information assets.
 


Free forever for public Silks of up to 3000 pages.

Adapter can be as simple or as advanced as you want. You can keep things simple and stick to presets or tweak settings to your heart's content.

Choose your video encoder, frame rate, bit rate, sample rate, audio encoder, number of channels, and more!

Great tool to quickly save web pages, including social media pages with hashtags.  Don't forget to grab the bookmarklet and move it onto your browser, too!

Alison Hewett's curator insight, February 28, 2014 4:01 PM

This could be handy to use with students looking at how internet based media can change and a story be altered. use this tool to preserve current ate of a story at a particular day/time.

This is kind of like a ScoopIt for video curation on YouTube. More at www.Zeeik.com. Thanks for the heads from Robin Good! 

Prof. Hankell's curator insight, December 2, 2013 8:33 AM
Robin Good's insight:

 

 

"Zeeik It" is a new bookmarklet from Zeeik, a video curation app, that allows you to easily collect and save into discrete collections all of the YouTube videos found on Twitter or on most any web page. 

Once collected you can pick the ones you want and easily trim them before saving them into a curated video collection.

 

Zeeik video collections are a good way to create valuable content that can be embedded in any article or guide and that can be served according to multiple categories and criteria as you can see from this specific example:http://zeeik.com/zeeik/-21828800  ;

(click "Cool Colors" or "Warm Colors").

 

You can find the new Zeeik It bookmarklet on the top right of the Zeeik home page here: http://zeeik.com/ ;

 

Free to use.
