New article! I wrote down the Excel techniques & formulas I use the most to clean up data sets (so that I can use them for #dataviz). Which techniques are you using all the time? Which ones did I miss? Which ones should I add? https://blog.datawrapper.de/prepare-and-clean-up-data-for-data-visualization/
Who wants to become my coworker? We're twelve people who help the world create better #dataviz. You could be one of us: https://blog.datawrapper.de/datawrapper-hiring-vector-export-developer/
What are your favorite tiny tools when working with data?
Here are three examples:
→ http://ucbvislab.github.io/d3-deconstructor/ to get the data out of d3 visualizations
→ https://shancarter.github.io/mr-data-converter/ convert CSV to JSON
→ https://countries.zeto.io input country name, output country codes (by @email@example.com)

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:
I built a Datawrapper chart that doesn't look like a Datawrapper chart anymore 🤔
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/
🚨 JOB ALERT 🚨
Hi! Do you want to work with me every single day? (Well, 4 days a week.) Do you want to live in a world in which more people create beautiful charts? Do you like improving metrics, testing, and writing about #dataviz?
New blog post! In which I criticize an Economist chart, and then feel bad for criticizing it: https://blog.datawrapper.de/weekly-chart-greenland-ice-melting-global-warming-2019/

Arrow plots with tooltips 😍 I think the visual design could be a bit better executed (colors, typo, symbols), but I'm in love with the idea. By @NatGeo@twitter.com, via @email@example.com: https://www.nationalgeographic.com/foodfeatures/diet-similarity/
