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
