#MakeoverMonday: Has Philadelphia recovered from the Great Recession?

No comments
For this week's Makeover Monday, we're looking at this dashboard from OpenDataPhilly.


What works well?

  • Consistency of colors
  • Simple design
  • Using an area chart with a bold line at the top
  • Bar chart is sorted
  • Interactive actions
  • Automatic proportional brushing

What could be improved?

  • Reduce the outline of the zip codes on the map
  • Remove the background from the map
  • Add a dashboard title
  • Change the chart titles to be more meaningful

And here's my makeover. Click to interact.
