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
  • 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.
