Hurricane Isaac and Tufte-style Supercharts
I was impressed by this "Tufte-esque" graph that shows projected path of Hurricane Isaac. Weather seems to provide the four-dimensional data values that makes chart plotters salivate. I'm always looking for ways to go "beyond the pie chart" in my day-to-day data interpretation and presentation. I found perhaps a new way to interpret the portfolio mix of our licensed and company-operated stores over time. Okay, not a "new" way, but different than how I have seen leadership discuss our sizable store portfolio over time. I'll post after I have a chance to edit and show only the historical, publicly available portion.
