researching for my next article (on software/code)

WHAT I LEARNED RECREATING ONE CHART USING 24 TOOLS

Finding the best tool means thinking hard about your goals and needs.

Back in May of this year, I set myself a challenge: I wanted to try as many applications and libraries and programming languages in the field of data visualization as possible. To compare these tools on a level playing field, I recreated the same scatterplot (also called a bubble chart) with all of them. Based on the results, I published two listicles: One for data vis applications and one for data vis libraries and programming languages. An overview of all the tools I tried can be found in this Google Spreadsheet. Now I’ll take a higher-level view and compare these tools with each other; mapping out my learnings.

"learnings"?!



Anyway, it's a good piece, which has some pretty useful graphics of its own:

The interactive one: you can take slices, like over age 85 or under age 5. Nice capturing of the skews.

WEB DuBois's hand-drawn infographs for the 1900 Paris World's Fair

https://www.fastcodesign.com/3068020...wn-infographic

Quote:
The prominent civil rights activist W.E.B. Du Bois was also a historian and sociologist—a background that led him to a firm belief in the revolutionary power of empirical data. In 1900, Du Bois showed that he also had a talent for visualizing that data—as seen in a series of experimental infographics he created for an exhibition at the World's Fair in Paris.

some are really odd, and took me a while to figure out what was being depicted

but you've got choropleths:

stacked bar graphs on marital status by age and sex:

and -sigh- pie charts:

these odd spiraled bars:

anyway, interesting historical stuff
