Authors: Maila Hardin, Daniel Hom, Ross Perez, & Lori Williams
You’ve got data and you’ve got questions. Creating a chart or graph links the two, but sometimes you’re not sure which type of chart will get the answer you seek.
This paper answers questions about how to select the best charts for the type of data you’re analyzing and the questions you want to answer. But it won’t stop there.
Stranding your data in isolated, static graphs limits the number of questions you can answer. Let your data become the centerpiece of decision making by using it to tell a story.Combine related charts. Add a map. Provide filters to dig deeper. The impact? Business insight and answers to questions at the speed of thought.
Which chart is right for you? Transforming data into an effective visualization (any kind of chart or graph) is the first step towards making your data work for you. In this paper you’ll find best practice recommendations for when to create these types of visualizations.
