A lot of new content has been added to ChartGuide and the look and feel of the website is redesigned. Two years after I started this project, I finally found the time to upgrade the website. So ChartGuide can help you better with choosing and designing the Perfect Chart.
ChartGuide was build as a site where people could download the Chart poster I created for my data visualization classes. After two years focusing on improving the poster, now I finally found the time to change the website. This does not mean that the poster has reached it final state. No, the change of the website design is the start of much more, offline and online. More about that, further below.
The first thing you see, is the update of the look and feel of the website. The site has become more visual, with the use of many pictures and icons. As a result everything is now easier to find. That was necessary, because a lot of new content has been added and even more will be added in the future. The purpose of www.Chart.Guide is to extend the use of the poster. To give you more background to support your choices and therefore, help you choose and design the Perfect Chart.
The site has now four main sections:
The main reason for people to visit ChartGuide is to download or buy the poster. That process is now easier. To celebrate the new website design, the poster was updated to version 3.5. Also new: people who subscribe for the free poster, will get a extra email after registration with instruction on how to use the poster. People who have registered in the past, did get the link to this section when they were informed about the update to poster version 3.5.
– More on the “not recommended” charts. Why you should not use them and what charts you should use instead.
– More information on the Choose a chart process.
– The “Build a Chart” section will be added to the site, where will be explained how to build the charts.
– Version 4.0 of the poster, that will include even more charts and design tips, and introduces a new chart group: Geography.
– Interactive Chart Chooser on the website.
Everything to help you choose and design the Perfect Chart.
