About this site

This is sort of an 'umbrella' site, as I'm pulling together some material that has been spread over several different sites. It all reflects my long-term interest in data visualization.

We are adding to our collection of charts frequently. Check back soon for more charts, or suggest a chart.

Charts vs Graphs vs Diagrams

I'm not aware of a good way to differentiate these terms, and I'm not going to try. They all embody the idea of adding visual or spatial elements that improve our ability to understand something.

'Chart' is often used to describe simple representations of two-variable date, as in bar charts or pie charts. Often chart data could be presented in a table, which is fine. However, such a table is often called a chart, which is erroneous and confusing.

'Chart' is also used to refer to complex and data-dense displays such as maps.

'Graph' tends to be used more in more mathematical settings, with x and y axes, but there are many exceptions.

'Diagram' usually implies a symbolic and non-numeric representation of something, but again, there are exceptions.

About Me

I'm Joe Casey. The charts are a reflection of my long-term interest in data visualization. It is often easier to see patterns and highlights when the data is presented in a chart.

See Chartmaking for a discussion of how I make charts.

Please email me if you have any questions, comments or suggestions, or if you are interested in having some custom charts created.
