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
Where spider (radar) charts are used to represent time series data, the time series needs to show cyclical data. For example data on crime offences by hour of day could be usefully represented on a spider chart, similarly disease levels by month of the year.
Create your own
Spider (radar) charts can be created in a range of standard data applications such as Excel.
