Makeover Monday 2019 Week 38: Positive Impact Events

Makeover Monday

This week’s Makeover Monday is a special collaboration with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Action Campaign. It’s also notable that the original viz this week is built with Google Data Studio (which I believe is a first).

What works well?

  • Dropdown filters allow for interactivity.
  • Stacked bar charts show distribution of responses.

What could be improved?

  • The order of the segments in the stacked bars is not intuitive. It would make more sense to sort them in order of duration (Don’t know, 1 month, 6 months, Forever).
  • Since there are a different number of responses for each action, it would be more comparable to use a 100% stacked bar.
  • The treemaps are a disaster; absolutely unreadable.

What Marc did:

  • Used 100% stacked bar charts in a small multiple layout to enable fair comparison across all actions.
  • Applied colours, fonts, and icons from the UN SDG branding guidelines.
