Design Consideration


Checking of the data - check the data to ensure data is correct (make sense) - start with simple graph to locate outliers Explain encodings - assume users do not understand everything - use legends, labels and documentation to explain concept Label axes - include axis labels and scale Include units - do not leave any numbers naked Keep your geometry in check - check calculation and algorithm is correct - size representation is correct Include your sources - Include and label where the data is from Consider your audience - Design should be user need driven
