The Functional Art: An Introduction to Information Graphics and Visualization: Smart interaction in visualization

Smart interaction in visualization

I'm always happy to see good charts being produced by national statistical offices. Thanks to Xan Gregg I've discovered these interactive visualizations by Rob Fry's team at the UK Office for National Statistics. They are sequences of density plots of the ages of people who committed suicide every year. As the annotation layer on the charts themselves point out, there were fewer suicides in the 90s than today or the 1980s, and they were more common among younger people. In later years the…

While visualizing data is undeniably important, sometimes a user requires context. Annotating allows for this context to be created, and dispels misinterpretations of the data.

An example of how to annotate a visualization, by The Financial Times

The Financial Times visualizes how Britons spend their time at weekends vs. week days, a graphic that is part of a story about how weekend working affects families. The array of graphs is elegantly designed, as it often happens with the FT, which has developed a massive library of high quality visualizations and even has a column about data journalism. That said, what really does the trick for me is the detailed annotations. Several members of the FT data and graphics team have repeatedly…

The Gates Foundation's inequality report is a visualization feast

The Gates Foundation's 2019 Goalkeepers Report is titled Examining Inequality, and it exemplifies how to combine different languages within a single narrative piece. My favorite visuals in the report are the conceptual hand-drawn diagrams; these ones reveal the factors that may hinder a person's progress, such as gender, geography, etc.: The report also contains orthodox visualizations. The designers at Graphicacy used scrollytelling in the middle section to zoom from a world map down to a…

A mosaic plot that exemplifies good design practices

Bloomberg's Lauren Leatherby and Chris Martin visualize energy consumption per country, and their reliance on coal, natural gas, petroleum, nuclear, and renewable sources. The result is an interactive mosaic plot (also known as “Marimekko chart”) that reveals plenty of insights, such as the rise of China and India, or the meager increase of renewables since 1980. This visualization exemplifies a few interactive design good practices. For instance, if you search for a country, a black outline…

U.S COVID-19 tracker by ProPublica

The big U.S. newspapers get most of the attention when it comes to news visualization, but other players are producing excellent work, as well. ProPublica, a nonprofit investigative journalism organization I donate to every year, has a very good tracker of COVID-19 cases in the U.S, designed by by Lena Groeger and Ash Ngu. The geographically arranged animated arrows on top are lovely.

“Another thing I learned from @EdwardTufte is the idea of symmetry. Here, you can see that you don't need both sides of the violin plot -- so I plot data from 10 years apart. Interestingly, the price distribution seems to be very similar except that the median has shifted upwards.”
