@drawingdata (2/2) Although I'm not sure that with what your data represent steplines are the best choice. Perhaps a stacked bar system could help maintain the time series in the way you are saying while producing a less crowded picture with no overlapping elements. This is a nice recent example of what I'm trying to say: https://www.theguardian.com/politics/ng-interactive/2018/may/04/local-council-election-results-2018-in-full
@drawingdata hello! Here's a few thoughts: with your data, I think I would go with linear interpolation, if I had to choose between the two, to show trends of how election results changed in time, with highlights+labels as you did later for steplines.
I like steplines bc when they are many, as in your case, the distribution at each step becomes very clear. I also agree with your thought "it's a better representation of the data" since it's not a continuous set of data but rather discrete. (1/2)
@mattbrehmer I've checked it out and it really looks like something very useful for my research! Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately, my final dissertation is going to be on April 20th, just the day before the workshop is held!! It would have been super nice to attend. I'll make sure to keep in touch in the near future though if this is cool yeah? Thanks again!
I heard you like WIPs! Here one of the viz we created to represent the transmission of information in different systems of people. You are looking at a chatroom: red dots are messages, nodes are participants. (project out soon, hopefully)
