Benefits & pitfalls: line chart

  • Line-charts imply that data is continuously changing. If your data is discrete you might consider a bar-chart instead.

Interactive map and time series (Flu trends)

Screenshot for 'Interactive map and time series (Flu trends)'
This map presents an estimate of the intensity of the flu in 20 countries, compared with data for the last six years. The upper panel is a line graph showing the current and past trends of flu intensity by country. The lower panel is the choropleth map with the shading corresponding to the intensity of the flu. The innovative feature of this visualisation is the underlying method of estimation: the intensity of the flu has been approximated based on the number of internet based queries submitted during a certain period of time. Analyses of past data have shown that this method offers good predictions of real levels of the illness.

This visualisation offers some specialised information about a couple of economic indicators: cumulative percentage of change of some currencies against the dollar and the annualized percentage of change in exports. The information is displayed for six developing economies as a way to show the relationship between monetary policy (adopting floating currencies) and the change in the exports. It gives detailed information for each country in order to convey its message to a relatively specialized audience.
