Fix That Graph

I can’t stand it anymore.  As I work with educators and staff from city offices, I see example after example of graphs, charts and other visuals that don’t quite make muster.  So here’s what I’m going to do.  I’m going to post the examples here with my thoughts about what needs to be done to make these visuals better in hopes you’ll get an idea or two that you can use.

If you have a data visual you’d like me to review, just email it to me at  I’ll take a look and post the results here!
