Whiteboard Data Viz: Snow Day Scenarios

Whiteboard Data Viz: Snow Day Scenarios

It’s only January and we already have a day and a half of “snow days” under our belts. If you live in Delaware, then you already know that this could potentially be just the beginning.

Weekly Whiteboard Data Viz: This Magic Moment

Weekly Whiteboard Data Viz: This Magic Moment

The election cycle is upon us and the campaigns are using all sorts of data to make a case for voters to join their tribe. A friend of mine, who knows my love for data visualizations, shared an article about the Clinton Campaign failing at data visualizations. In this example, the campaign attempts to utilize a Venn Diagram to show support for universal background checks for firearm purchases.
