Presenting the Guardian University league table

As an example of how easy I'm now finding it to present online data I thought I'd use the Guardian University league table.

I was inspired by the article 'Liberating data from the Guardian... Has it really come to this?' to present the data in the guardian article University guide 2011: University league table as a series of charts to make the data easier to interpret.

I learnt that google docs spreadsheets can import data from web pages and other items into formats that charting tools can understand. Previously I was entering data by hand. Now I know I've got a bunch of import tools to help me.
