Hi

Interesting astro & markets charts ahead - unique #Datavisualization with #Tableau

$SPX 2005-current
Colors show Pluto through Terms
Note 2008 - Pluto in Term Mars (red) rallied at 1st, but then most of meltdown Pluto in red

Now 2021-22 & change into red Mars near the top
Volatility idea was not hindsight as I pointed out negative historical data in Dec-2021

If you are new to this account, what are the "terms"?

Very ancient divisions of the zodiac not in regular use today by 99%+ of astrologers

Yet I find the data & market reactions compelling again and again

Another year of my data science class has finished, and so now it's time to talk about this year's run of "the Hunt for the Worst Data Visualization."

This year had some great submissions from the class:

#DataVisualization #DataScience #EconTwitter
First, here is a link to last year's submissions. Students this year were not allowed to choose any of these to keep us hunting for only the worst visualizations
@protensia started us off with a lovely graph I titled "Billy from Family Circus Got a Job at 538"

The cherry on top: citing "various sources"

Histogram: The chart above is a simple histogram of the “total_bill” variable. At a glance, we can see that a single meal at this restaurant generally costs around $10 to $25, and there is a positive skew due to some diners ordering more expensive food with prices above $50.
Count Plot: Now, let’s look at the number of male and female diners at the restaurant, to determine the gender that visits the eatery more often.

Thread 🧵

Each #dataviz you create needs to tell a story. It doesn't help if we just group a bunch of graphs together on different metrics.

So here are 5 pointers that might help create a story out of your #Datavisualization. Follow along :)

#RStats #Tidyverse #DataScience
1. Understand what question you're trying to answer - the one key question that ties together all the charts in your #dataviz, and align all the metrics accordingly.

Eg: How #Covid brought down the economy in 2020 - Put together charts on GDP, inflation, employment

#RStats
2. Set the context for the audience right at the beginning of your visualization. This will let them know what they can expect from your visual story, and give them an idea of what conclusions you're trying to draw.

What are some seminal works (articles or books) on #datavisualization #dataviz that should be known by practitioners? Must reads? Particularly in science viz & complex systems
Fun fact, term “big data” was 1st used in 1997 by NASA researchers to describe challenge of supercomputers generating massive amounts of info (airflow around✈️)— that cannot be processed & visualized. “We call this the problem of big data.” dl.acm.org/doi/10.5555/26…
Thanks for all the contributions (so far)! I am making a google doc for all of them and will share it here soon!
