Data Viz Done Right

Makeover Monday: Regional Tourism Spending in New Zealand (Take 3)

Inspired by the visualisation by Harry Enten that I highlighted today on my sister site DataVizDoneRight, I decide to look at the New Zealand tourism data again and see if I could build a similar view. After all, no data visualisation is ever “complete”. I really like how this turned out (and thank you to Eva Murray for feedback).

I incorporated a legend on the upper right to make the bars easier to interpret. Basically the grey bar shows the 25th to 75th percentile of all of the regions and the red dot indicates the median of all regions. I’ve removed the total region from the view.
