Types of Infographics
Ribbon Chord Diagram
This type of chart is used to show the relationships between variables—for example, the neighborhood you live in vs. your voting history. Or, your neighborhood and how you commute to work. We've included a third variable (string) color to add more visual information.
Complicated and a little crazy looking, parallel coordinates show a more fleshed out picture of the participant. We can ask questions based on demographics, opinions, and see patterns over the course of the chart.
This chart, one of the more recognizable of the living infographics, explores the relationship between an explanatory variable and response variable. I like to show these variables on more of a spectrum (rankings, for example) vs. predetermined answers.
