More Information per Pixel!

In my last post I suggested some chart selection rules as an alternative to Godin’s Silly Rules for Great Graphs. Jerome commented:

[...] on a slide, you want to convey one message. your graph must NOT carry any information that can be interpreted differently than the point you are trying to make. the corollary is that in virtually all cases, you should display as little data points as possible: 1 if possible, 2 but no more than 3. If you need more than 3 data points, use handouts. [...]

which is very much in line with what Seth Godin said in his famous post about Chart Rules:

No, the reason you put a chart in a presentation is to tell a story. A single story, one story per chart

Why should a presentation display as little data as possible? Why should a slide contain only one chart? I demand More Information Per Pixel. Why not have a data-rich chart in a slide - no, even a couple of charts to support my message?

My friend Rolf Hichert has a totally different design philosophy.

Components of good presentations slides:

  • A clear message
  • A clear title (should be a complete sentence, including units like K$)
  • Each slide to conveys only one message
  • More tables and charts to support the message
  • Choose the right chart type
  • Use arrows, color etc. to highlight the message

Look at this sample taken from Rolf’s web site:

image

The slide has a clear title that conveys one message: "Further positive Development in Frankfurt, Vienna and Graz - Action needed in Lausanne and Linz".

The slide contains small multiple charts to support the message, where Rolf has chosen a line chart to emphasize trends or patterns. The problematic regions mentioned in the title are colored in red; those that made the CEO happy in green.

Chart Rules, As Simple as Possible, But Not Any Simpler!

In chart design it’s good to make things simple, but you certainly should avoid oversimplification. As Einstein said:

"Things should be made as simple as possible, but not any simpler"

Seth Godin presented in his blog The three laws of great graphs:

1. One Story
2. No Bar Charts
3. Motion

Effective chart design rules are simple, but reducing it to this set of 3 rules certainly is an over-oversimplification.

Particularly rule 2 is flawed. Seth details rule 2:

"NO BAR CHARTS
Bar charts are dramatically overrated, primarily because they’re the first choice in many graphing programs.

The problem with bar charts is that they should either be line/area charts (when graphing a change over time, like unemployment rates) or they should be a simple pie chart (when comparing two or three items at the same scale).

Jorge, Kaiser and Jon already wrote some critical posts about this rule, where Jon suggested to replace rule 2 with

Choose Chart Types Intelligently

We are working tightly together with Stephen Few on a new product that helps business users creating effective charts with Excel and are therefore we are quite familiar with Stephen’s design principles.

Its an easy to learn set of rules

1. Determine the relationship you want to display

Relationship Sample

Value Comparison

Sales in different regions

Ranking

Best selling products

Time-Series

Sales in the last 12 months

Part-to-Whole

Market shares

Deviation

Revenue Actual vs Budget in the last 12 months

Distribution

Support response times

Correlation

Relationship between employee’s heights in inches and their salary

 

2. Determine if you want to emphasize individual values or the overall pattern
3. Determine the chart type

Relationship Encoding Method  

Value Comparison

Bars and Columns

Ranking

Bars and Columns

Time-Series

Lines to emphasize the overall trends or pattern

image

 

Points connected by lines to slightly emphasize individual values

image

 

Columns to emphasize and support comparisons between individual values

image

Part-to-Whole

Bars and Columns

image

Deviation

Lines to emphasize the overall shape of the data

image

 

Points connected by lines to slightly emphasize individual data points

Bars and Columns to emphasize individual values

image

Distribution

Columns to emphasize individual values

image

 

Lines to emphasize the overall shape of he data

image

Correlation

Points and a trend line in the form of a scatter plot

Armed with this set of rules you would rule out Seth’s pie chart, and use the bar chart in the appropriated business context.

Hermann Grids, An optical Illusion Best Avoided

An interesting optical illusion is the so-called Hermann Grid illusion: the effect of seeing gray dots at the intersections of a black grid on a white background or a white grid on a black background.

image_thumb3

 

 

 

 

While it’s an interesting optical illusion, it’s something we should avoid in management reporting:

image_thumb16

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tables formatted with medium or thick black or gray borders tend to produce Hermann Grids. Just scan the table above and you should see the gray dots in the grid intersections.

To avoid this unpleasant and distracting effect, and to maximize the data-ink ratio follow this simple but very effective table design rule:

  • Avoid using dark and heavy grids
  • Use light gray grids instead

image_thumb19

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Above is the same table with light gray borders. This eliminates the Hermann Grid illusion and – by de-emphasizing the grid –  puts more emphasis on the numbers.

Here are some images I found on Google Image Search that show how popular it is to put your data behind Hermann Grids:

image_thumb8

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

image_thumb11

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So I hope you are with me – get rid of the heavy grids and free your data!
