An Open Data Camp 7 session on data visualisation, led by Ian Makgill. These are live-blogged notes.
There is a lot of temptation to use really exciting visualisations. But 90% of the time, you end up with bar or line charts – because they work. If you have more than 20 data points along the x axis, you probably want a line chart, not a bar chart.
We’re celebrating the tenth anniversary of @instituteforgov this week, which provides a great opportunity to look back on everything we’ve done with data down the years.
(A long one, forgive me this once…!)
