How to Read a Sankey Visualization

n dimensions + 1 metric

Shows the distribution of a metric on several dimensions, with the value of each dimension’s distribution shown on the next dimension. Continuer la lecture de How to Read a Sankey Visualization

How to Read a Treemap Visualization

1 dimension (hierarchical or not) + 1 metric

A Treemap visualization represents a hierarchical dimension by encoding a metric on each node of the hierarchy. Continuer la lecture de How to Read a Treemap Visualization

How to read Leaderboards

Leaderboard

The leaderboard displays a metric over a dimension in a way that allows you to easily categorize each dimension value’s “performance” in terms of the metric value.

How to Read a Sunburst Visualization

A sunburst visualization represents a hierarchical dimension by encoding a metric on each node of the hierarchy. Example : The hierarchical dimension of geography. On the first level, we can see the distribution of the metric between continents. We can then explore a continent to see the distribution between countries, etc. (If the dimension isn’t hierarchical, it equates to a Camembert (pie chart)).

How To Read Line Graphs

Line Graphs

Lines are primarily used with a time dimension on the x-axis and allow you to observe the evolution of a metric over time. It’s possible to add a supplementary dimension, where each value of the dimension is represented on a different line. The lines can represent different metrics if it makes sense and they share an axis in common.
