My current problem: I'm building automated weekly report, showing the same metric over time. I want to show the trend, but I want to emphasize the most recent data point. With a typical 'time on x-axis' line chart, the rightmost value is not where your attention goes. Has anyone thought through this before?
I'll be giving a talk at George Washington University about some work I did while I was at the Library of Congress. If you find yourself in DC or know someone who may be interested, please come! https://www.meetup.com/Data-Visualization-DC/events/251998703/
I’m formulating a plan for inclusion efforts on vis.social, with the goal of making this a more diverse (and therefore more valuable and sustainable) social space.
But… I don't know what I'm doing! Please review and comment to me here, or in the doc:
