Data Viz Done Right
From Chart of the Day. I suspect you know my opinion here. You tell me which on is easier to read.
What if you remake the chart at http://www.wired.com/epicenter/2011/05/netflix-traffic/ as a line instead of a stacked bar?
Changing the stacked bar to a line chart would certainly make the comparisons across categories much easier. Since the data is by time, trends would become more obvious too.A couple of things are interesting:1. Web browsing is decreasing2. Entertainment is increasing (led by Netflix)3. Social networking only appears in 2010; I find that surprisingUnfortunately they don't have the data easily available without having to recreate it yourself.
