Making datasheets better

Make plot curves digitizable

Datasheets are full of plots of different parameters of the chip, but sometimes reading the value off the plot by eye is difficult.

I've used http://arohatgi.info/WebPlotDigitizer/app/ to paste in datasheet plots and manually trace the plot curve and turn them into lists of numbers that I can read accurately, but some tool like this built into the site (with more automatic recognition of the curves) would be amazing.

An easy first implementation would be to let me define the axes (their position in the image, numeric range, and linear/log scaling) and then I can drag a crosshair around the image and it will show me the coordinates of the crosshair relative to the graph's axes, so I can manually aim at a point on the curve and read off the x and y values.
