Dataviz inspiration from Infoplus 2018 and IEEEvis

Recently I had a three day inspiration tip to  both #infoplus2018 and #ieeevis2018.  I listened to many great talks and had inspiring conversations. Looking forward to apply all these new insights to and improve the poster.

All talks at InformationPlus 2018 were filmed, soon the 2018 films will be online available. If you are interested, check the of InformationPlus website.

Celebrate International Chart Day with the new ChartGuide poster

At ChartGuide we celebrate International Chart Day  with releasing a new version of the ChartGuide Poster. Get your free version and celebrate with us by choosing and designing the perfect chart.

International Chart Day

Although it was not our idea of creating a special day, dedicated to charts, we are a big fan. The purpose of International Chart Day is:

Charts and other variations of information graphics have been around for hundreds of years, and are an important tool for making complex information easier to understand. However, not all charts are created equal: they can sometimes be too complicated or convey false and/or misleading information if not executed correctly.

On April 26, chart lovers will unite to celebrate the first-ever “International Chart Day,” an opportunity for the infographic creating community to engage the public by sharing their favorite examples, further explaining the history and value of charts, and sharing insight in to how to create high-quality, visually engaging, informative visualizations.

Chart.Guide will help you to follow the 5 rules of International Chart Day. Celebrate with us and share our choosing and designing tips with your charting-friends.

1. Celebrate charts and infographics of all types;
2. Help the public understand how to read charts and gain useful insights from them;
3. Help chart makers of all levels understand the necessary components of a truthful chart;
4. Encourage the wider usage and adoption of charts;
5. Combat the spread of fake news by making the public smarter consumers of information.

Sneak preview of the new Chart.Guide Poster

Welcome to this sneak preview of the Chart.Guide poster, edition 3.0.

Two years ago, I designed a poster filled with charts to help my students in my datavisualization classes. It became a small succes.

One year ago, I founded www.Chart.Guide, because a lot of people asked for a downloadable version of the poster. At that time I also redesigned my poster into version 2.0. New chart were added and as a bonus I included some chart design tips. In one year over 150 big posters of this edition were printed and distributed. The small downloadable one was even a bigger success. More than 500 people all over the world are using it.

Today I received a big box from the printer with the third edition of the Chart.Guide Poster as you can see in the picture above this post. So I can present to you a sneak preview of the Chart.Guide Poster 3.0. With even more charts and design tips.

The coming day’s I’ll update www.Chart.Guide so the new poster is available for download and shipment to you. For now, you just have to enjoy this sneak preview. As soon as the site is updated, I’ll send out an email to all who downloaded the earlier versions, so they can download the new ChartGuide Poster for free.

Update November 5th: The new mini poster is online and ready for download. You just have to subscribe to the newsletter.
