What are ratings?

Ratings let you assess a visualisation according to:

How much a visualisation makes you take notice of it

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
  • Use of 3D for presenting data can obscure values, for example where low-value data points lie behind high-value points. Allowing the user to interact with the visualisation, eg rotating or moving the view, can get round this issue.
Create your own
  • Scatterplots can be created in a range of standard data applications such as Excel.
