Data Chomp 03

1. What makes a good data visualization?

 

  • Positives
    • Makes something potentially complex become clear
    • Intuitive – readers can understand it in seconds
    • The symmetry and colour choices make it pleasing to the eye and encourage viewing (this could have easily become a technicolor mess)
  • Insights
    • Informs the reader –  what might be lacking in their data viz, and what to fix
    • Surprising how many data visualisations we see that do not tick all 4 boxes (me included!)
    • Most infographics are useless (information + visual form)
  • Suggestions
    • Potentially make more interactive e.g. Hover over each section to get more details and possible a thumbnail example
