Interesting! I would have expected these to get progressively darker with difficulty, but it seems like there are quite a lot of dark squares in the medium difficulty. Taken from r/dataisbeautiful
interesting interactive vis on carbon footprints, reminded me of the subject meika is working on.
bob rossing it out – adding a little colour into your life. for me, visually appealing, without interaction to isolate trends or specific points it may be a bit difficult to discern especially in areas of significant overlap.
thought it was an interesting looking visualization, would people consider this a spin on parallel coords ?
while it may be visually appealing i find this visualization slightly difficult to interpret. not a major fan.

According to this, Norway is great at Winter Olympics! I’m curious about the categories they’re including though; I suspect it’s really biasing the visualization.
Usually companies colour code these things. It makes it so easy to know what’s what without having to read the packaging. Why isn’t this brand doing that?! (I think it was Kotex maybe?) Infuriating.
(https://mastersofmedia.hum.uva.nl/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/fry_viz2.jpg) Although I found the visualization itself interesting, the y-axis isn’t labeled, making me unable to tell if the person was consuming pounds, grams, or tons of fries.

I found this on Twitter, and I think it’s a super neat visual timeline. I do wish that it included years so I could figure out when pictures became more prevalent and expected on the front page.
