Makeagain Monday: Highlighting the Changes in Satisfaction with EU Transport

No comments
Another quick Makeagain Monday as I get ready to head to the States. This morning, I look at this visualisation from Pablo Sáenz de Tejada, who was in the first cohort of The Data School.


What would I change?

  • The red/green color scale might be tough for color blind folks.
  • I'm confused by the colors on the ends of the bar because those don't represent the same thing as the color of the middle bar.
  • There are too many controls for me at the top. Might this be better as a static image with a singular story? Pablo chose to make it interactive, which is perfectly fine. I simply might choose to do different. Neither is better.
  • There are a LOTS of cities in this. I would show the top and bottom 10 for simplicity. Again, personal preference.

Here's my step-by-step makeagain of this visualisation. Click on the gif for the interactive version.
