The way we look at data informs, and often even determines, the conclusions we draw from it. So how can we make sure we are presenting it in the most enlightening way possible?
This flow chart from Extreme Presentation is just the thing to help you decide how to organize your data! The Chart Chooser shows you what kind of chart will best represent the information you want to convey.
Figure out if you are showing comparison, distribution, composition, or relationship, and go from there! Be sure to check out the other resources for great presentations on the Extreme Presentation site, where you can also download a PDF of this flow chart.
