Follow up: Evolution of the Ozone Hole

You know, I really love it when people discuss issues and share solutions. Joe Mako and I had a great discussion on my last two posts regarding the most effective visual representation of the ozone hole over time. Joe create an OUTSTANDING representation of the data using floating bars.

Joe created this visual using Tableau. I had not seen anyone do this in Tableau before. I had thought about doing stacked bars and making the lower of the two bars white, but this is way better. Joe has also provided the Tableau Packaged Workbook. I have posted this on a Google Group that I just created.

Thanks Joe! Excellent work!
