Hey I'm working a list of "Data Viz dos and don't s"
So far I've collected a few points from Edward Tufte:
- Y-Axis should start a 0
- Check the "Lie Factor": size of a graphic effect divided by the size the effect in the data, it should be close to 1
- "Chart chunk" aka. "Data-to-Ink" ratio: don't use any unnecessary elements which distract from the communication of the data
What else to add?
People talk a lot about limiting global warming to 2 ºC. But what happens if we don't? In this pretty drastic chart, my colleague @gka explains what different stages of the ongoing climate crisis could look like (it's bad) 🔥 https://blog.datawrapper.de/climate-crisis-global-warming/
It is proven! I am gka on Keybase: https://keybase.io/gka/sigchain#81c45478031db96817b37b784fc3c89afb5f0da13192aba9f287c7fc891d1d790f

This is also the last Weekly Chart that I wrote...weekly. Starting next week, all of us start charting & writing. I explain the reasons here: https://blog.datawrapper.de/weekly-chart-why-you-will-hear-more-from-other-datawrapper-employees/
Until the end of August, the @firstname.lastname@example.org will work through "Observe, Collect, Draw!" by @email@example.com & @firstname.lastname@example.org. I wrote about why you should join us here: https://blog.datawrapper.de/datavis-bookclub-stefanie-posavec-giorgia-lupi-observe-collect-draw/ #observecollectdraw #deardata
I thought it's fun to document my process in the following tweets:
Shameless selfpromotion coming in 😆 :
I've released the Game Deru, it's an #minimalistic, #puzzle #game for two players. It's purely cooperative and designed as a couch co-op experience.
Since you guys are interested in #design, it might be something for you :D
