One Chart at A Time Video Series

Jon Schwabish over at PolicyViz has created great initiative called the One Chart at a Time Video Series. It’s an effort to expand readers’ graphic literacy through short videos explaining how to read and use different charts. Each video is from a different person in the data visualization industry. Participants include people I admire such as Andy Kirk, Ben Jones, and Cole Nussbaumer Knaflic. Jon releases a new video each weekday. The initiative started January 11 and will continue through mid-March.

In each video, the presenter answers 3 questions:

  1. Can you please describe the graph?
  2. Can you please describe any considerations chart makers need to take into account when creating this type of chart?
  3. Can you please share an example of this chart you really like?
One Chart at a Time: Waterfall Charts with Meagan Longoria

I was honored to be asked to participate and talk about waterfall charts. My video (episode 13) has been published! You can check it out below, but I highly recommend you check out all the previous episodes and stay tuned for future episodes.

Links to examples

My video contains a few examples of waterfall charts, and I want to make sure to give credit to these designers for their work here, in addition to noting them in my video.

I hope you watch and enjoy the One Chart at a Time Video Series.
