I’m doing some form of data visualization learning for 180 days straight because I need to #JFDI. See post explaining how and why I’m doing this.
I haven’t been keeping up with the posting this week because of an apartment lease signing and getting everything together. I’ll be backdating some posts because I have putting in the work everyday, at least a little bit, and at the office everyday.
Reading and Learning Data Visualization Theoretically/Critically:
Three Takeaways Chapter 2 Chart Smart
- In a single chart, keep the max number of lines to three or four if the lines are not intersecting at company points and will obscure picture. Use a panel of charts to preserve clarity of each line instead.
- Don’t mix two uncorrelated series with one scale on left and another one on right.
- Keep shades moving from lightest to darkest since it will be difficult to contrast.
