What are ratings?

Ratings let you assess a visualisation according to:
 

Impact:
How much a visualisation makes you take notice of it
 

Accuracy:
How well it portrays the true data behind it
 

Rate visualisations according to your own impressions and expertise. We also ask you to let us know how you rate your own level of expertise in terms of data and visualisation, so that we can filter ratings further in future.
 

For more information on ratings and levels of expertise, see our help page.

Benefits & pitfalls to avoid
  • When using colours to portray data values or types, ensure that the colors used are accessible to all users. Online tools such as ColorBrewer (www.colorbrewer.org) can help identify issues with colours used.
Create your own
  • A Treemap is a visualisation of hierarchical structure. You can upload data to online tools such as Many Eyes to create interactive Treemaps. However, we are not aware of any standard desktop tools that can be used to create Treemaps (please email if you know of anything!).
