After more than a year (!), I finally wrote another episode of the "What to consider..."-series. This time I talk about the do's and don'ts of using tables within articles: blog.datawrapper.de/tables/

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 @flowingdata@twitter.com: nationalgeographic.com/foodfea

A beautiful venue, inspiring talks, awesome sketchnotes (thank you, @apilapepita@twitter.com!), meeting lots of new people – what a great, great @vizknowledge@twitter.com conference 2019 here in Finland! Thanks for having me, and thanks for the flawless organization.

Happening right now: A discussion about "Factfulness", hosted by @vizowl@twitter.com. With lots of awesome opinions. Watch or participate here: notes.datawrapper.de/p/bookclu

Even if you don't speak German, have a look at that beauty by @zeitonline@twitter.com: zeit.de/politik/deutschland/20

It has everything:
😍 animated maps with annotation
😍 small multiples
😍 zoomed in line charts
😍 beautiful dot circles

The best interactive story I've seen lately.

I had some fun looking for examples of callout lines in news graphics for a new post: blog.datawrapper.de/locatormap Thanks to @nytgraphics@twitter.com, @ReutersGraphics@twitter.com, @washingtonpost@twitter.com graphics team and especially @BBGVisualData@twitter.com for using so many great swoopy & straight lines pointing to things!

That was a fun chart to make in @Datawrapper@twitter.com! (Kudos to @rcbregman@twitter.com's book for the original.) blog.datawrapper.de/weeklychar

Yesterday's Data Vis Book Club (@datavisclub) about RJ Andrews' "Info We Trust" was really fun. Thanks to @infowetrust for answering our questions, and to everyone who participated in the discussion! It's all preserved here: notes.datawrapper.de/p/bookclu

Shaping up to be a solid month of March for :datavizcamp: πŸ“–. Excited for the book club meeting on Tuesday, organized by @lisacrost

the result is sort of interesting. for some months, like July and August the temp. increase really has picked up the pace in the late 1960s. But for October the increases seem to be a lot more "linear". Might be just some Loess artifacts.

A few days ago @1wheel made a nice version of the chart that also shows the individual temperatures as points + linear trend lines
