Best Practices:
  • Using intensity of color to make the data and story stand out
  • Good choice of colors
  • Including an option to highlight the winners with the dark borders
  • Very clear story
Recommended Enhancements:
  • The overall picture would be easier to see if it was all in one view. I would fix this by swapping the axes.
  • Change the order of the years; I'd like to see it in chronological order.
  • Add an option to filter the years, i.e., I might want to focus on only the last 10 years.
