This question is in the same vein as this one: Program for reading data off scanned graphs

Recently more and more interactive charts show up on the Net. Have a look at the following one:

My question
Is there a possibility of automatically reading out the data into a table? Are there some tools available because I can't find the data in the source code? There should be a solution because if you point to the curve you'll get all the data.

There's no generic solution for that. The graph itself is SVG-based, so you can download the source and try to play around with the raw curves and all that though. –  slhck Jul 11 '12 at 13:17
    
@slhck: Can you expound on this and make an answer out of it? cheers vonjd –  vonjd Jul 11 '12 at 14:50
    
I don't feel too comfortable doing that, since it's not a real answer. I looked into the source code a little more and it seems the whole data is contained here – but encoded. –  slhck Jul 11 '12 at 14:57
    
When I click on the link nothing happens? –  vonjd Jul 11 '12 at 16:59

Isn't it ironic that humans can read the data bit by bit but machines not...? –  vonjd Jul 12 '12 at 6:30
