Hi, I’m Corey Newhouse, the Founder and Principal of Public Profit. We help public service organizations measure and manage what matters. As the leader of an 8-person evaluation firm, I think often about staff training and common organizational practices.
Tutankhamen was 9 when he took the throne, Marie Antoinette was 19, and Elizabeth II was 26. What have you been doing with your youth?
Nice example of a timeline/floating bar chart. The leaders are currently ordered chronologically (from King Tut through JFK). Could also be interesting to order the chart by age at ascent, length of reign, etc.
Another example of a stacked bar chart.
Hot tip: You don’t have to label every single bar. We just put the “very important” and “somewhat important” labels on the first bar to reduce clutter.
Keyword-frequency of “NSA”, “Prism”, “Snowden” in several German / International news-outlets over time
Great example of a bubble chart used within a timeline. Bubble charts use the circle’s area to represent size or frequency.
NSA broke privacy rules thousands of times per year, audit finds
Good example of a stacked bar chart with a call-out section to tell a fuller story about one aspect of the chart.
How Daft Punk is “Doin’ It Right” in terms of music marketing for their 2013 album “Random Access Memories”
Beautiful and clear example of using a timeline to visualize information.
