So here is somebody tracking sumo rankings
Spoiler:


I've got to be able to do something better than that.

Here's the guy's site:

I do like the red for losing rank, but I think there needs to be a different color for maintaining rank than green.

This person's 25 best visualizations of 2018
https://towardsdatascience.com/the-2...8-93643f0aad04

Mainly, I see some pretty pictures, but many are so complicated as to not really convey much of anything other than some people got their hands on fancy tools.

Some of the interactive ones are good ways of exploring the data, even if it doesn't really provide much of a message.

I'm not copying over all the text, but the point was they took 10 graphs related to drug abuse/overdose deaths and asked people to rank them and they asked about the ranking.

Quote:
Data is Personal: Where is Home?
If you’re like us, you may think that our findings would suggest that map visualizations are a clear and obvious winner. After all, overviews of the United States include Pennsylvania (PA).
And in fact, Pennsylvania did matter to our participants. But it manifested itself in a surprising way…
These two [US country] maps are [ranked low] because I like them less. It’s the whole country; it’s so huge. You naturally look at your state. It’s too busy. I’m not thrilled with those.
— 65–74 year old. high school graduate.

Some participants disliked map views that didn’t focus on Pennsylvania. They thought the country-wide overview was distracting from the story they were looking for (their home).
This wasn’t an outlier. Our beautiful overview maps were routinely criticized, often referred to as “cluttered” or “busy”. While Pennsylvania is on the map, it is surrounded with dense data from areas of the country our participants were not interested in.
This is interesting because we tend to lean hard on the design pattern of Overview → Details on Demand. But what we’re seeing here is that some people find the overview to distract from key information they care about. If we have access to personal information (like a browser had access to geolocation), we may be best served designing with a new pattern: Personal Details → Overview.
