Storytelling with data: declutter this graph!

The importance of decluttering when communicating visually with data is something that I talk about regularly (you can watch a video from me on this topic, and I’ve also blogged about it many times—here’s an early example). It’s mostly common sense stuff when we stop and think about it: get rid of the visual elements in your graphs that are unnecessary. Doing so can have a profound impact. Yet too often, we don’t take the time to do this.

Schönes vorher/nachher Beispiel, das zeigt, wie man mit wenigen Handgriffen seine Visualisierungen klarer und aufgeräumter darstellen kann.
