Bella Reporting Standards

More on graphic representation of data ...

"The day before yesterday Rolf and I raged again. We took apart annual reports of large corporate
groups. We made fun of tachometers. We showed how charts lie. We established rules. We defined standards. Some of the rules are in the example. Time runs from left to right. Only structure is shown top-down. We don’t use funny patterns. We label directly. We never label twice. We avoid legends and scales.

Charts show profits (Gewinne) of TUI AG, a major German company for tourism (Touristik, red), shipping (Schifffahrt, blue), and logistics."    (Continued via Bella consults)    [Usability Resources]
