We’ve made it through 12 weeks of #WorkoutWednesday2019 and we’ve yet to have a challenge that the overwhelming majority of the community has agreed was very difficult. And then, enter stage right, Luke Stanke with a candlestick challenge for week 13. He even said it in challenge intro, “This is very difficult.” And he even
The Pareto principle was developed by the Italian economist Vilfredo Pareto when, in 1906, noticed that 80% of the land in Italy was owned by 20% of the population. And thus, the 80/20 rule was born and business leaders have been stuck on it ever since 🙂 The Pareto chart is based on the principle
Hello again! Welcome back and as always, thanks for reading!
For week 5 of #MakeoverMonday 2019, Andy has given us a stacked bar chart from the European Commission looking at the Digital Economy and Society Index scores for countries in the EU across 5 categories.
What works well
- sorted best to worst
- legend is clear
- title is simple enough
What could be improved
- Stacked bars are good for cumulative comparison but as soon as you add the colors to each bar, I think instinctively a large number of will want to compare the parts to each other. And in this display, doing that is extremely difficult.
I think there’s a way that we preserve the ability to see and compare the cumulative indices AS WELL AS being able to compare each the individual parts.
I think a multi-dimensional dot plot is the best way to visualize this data. I remember WAY back in week 17 of 2017 (Apr. 24) of #MakeoverMonday that Tableau Zen Master, Matt Chambers created a dashboard that is extremely close to the one I want to build for this week. Back then we were comparing a list, compiled by LinkedIn, of skills in high demand. Here is what Matt created, click the picture for the interactive version:
He even wrote up a blog about highlight action piece.
I’m going to #StealLikeAnArtist and use this as a framework for what I’m going to build. Here is what I built. If you want to learn how I built it complete with data prep and calculations, I encourage you to continue reading below, otherwise, click the screenshot for the interactive version
Former #IronViz champion and just about the nicest guy you’ll ever know, Curtis Harris has also joined the #WorkoutWednesday2019 crew. And week 4 is his inaugural post. Let’s take a look! Alrighty, here we go. We’ve got a step line chart with circles on the points of change, sized by absolute change, colored by polarity.
After 51 weeks, we’ve finally made it to the last week #WorkoutWednesday for 2018. Ann is back for this challenge and she’s GONE ROGUE!!! No, just kidding, but she did stray away from the Superstore Sales dataset which is pretty cool. So here’s the challenge and a screenshot of the final dashboard: I’ve noticed this
Luke is back for another #WorkoutWednesday challenge. And for this week, he’s challenging us to recreate an actual real-world visual that Luke recently created for a client. It’s an interesting story, I encourage you to go read the intro. Let’s take a look at what we’re gonna do this week: Cool! A waterfall chart. I
For week 15, we’re looking at a very topical dataset. The National Snow & Ice Data Center has taken daily sea ice coverage measurements dating back to the late 1970’s. Recently, they created the visual below from the data: What works well The time to insight is very low with this visual. I know exactly
A good challenge that was not as hard as I was making it.
