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
Cartograms are distorted maps, where the geographic areas represent data values, but retain (at least some) similarity in shape to the original map. The Cartogram above shows each country of the world, with the circle size representing annual carbon emissions, the World graphic at the top-right used to establish colours used for continents, and the bar-chart and table at the bottom showing data values in ranked order.
