America's Biggest Bandwidth Hogs: A Makeover of a Makeover

1 comment
After posting my makeover of Santosh's makeover yesterday, Dave Kirk reached out to make and asked me to do the same to any of his Makeover Monday visualisations. For week 8, Dave created this chart about America's bandwidth usage:


What doesn't work?

  • Too many colors
  • The slices aren't sorted
  • The largest slice should start at 12 o'clock and then go in descending order around the clock
  • What's the purpose of the inside ring?
  • Needs a better, more focused title

Below is a step by step makeover, taking Dave's viz from a ringed donut to a simple bar chart. Click on the image to view it on Tableau Public.
