Chandoo of Pointy Haired Dilbert fame and I are starting a regular series of posts, entitled The Chart Doctor. We will start with charts that need help, either generated by our readers, or encountered by our readers on the internet or during their business activities. We’ll dissect the charts, and try to apply good visualization practices while displaying what the author thinks should be displayed.
At first we’ll concentrate on standalone charts, because reconstruction of a whole dashboard could take days.
Chandoo will lead one analysis, and I will lead the next. We’ll comment on each other’s approach, and if history is any indication,we’ll get lots of comments from you smart readers. I expect this series to generate some good discussions. So submit your best, or worst, charting examples to Jon or Chandoo, and join the fun.
