Here is my submission:

I wanted to make something that was fun and useful for birders of all levels. Newbies can just look at the "Best Seeds for Your Feeder" section or check out a particular bird they are interested in. Advanced birders can find interesting patterns and commonalities between birds in the diagram.

I used Excel to quantify the "Best Seeds" section and Illustrator to put it all together.

It seems odd. The opposite trend happens when crest is involved...,sonicare,crest

Original Poster1 point · 1 day ago

It could be due to the relatively greater popularity of the search terms sonicare and oral-b in Decembers that cause the dips in the crest trend line. Seems that the google search volume for crest is still way above those two terms.

see more

Maybe, or maybe Crest is less popular that time of year? Or Oral-B is cheaper?

Also I noticed... the December/November is an average. Turns out, by looking at more granular data (zooming in), all the real peaks happen on Black Friday.

I suppose there is no surprise there, but more granularity brings a clearer picture of what's going on.

In short, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. What's beautiful for one person may not necessarily be pleasing to another. To quote the sidebar:

DataIsBeautiful is for visualizations that effectively convey information. Aesthetics are an important part of information visualization, but pretty pictures are not the aim of this subreddit.

The mods' jobs is to enforce basic standards and transparent data. In the case one visual is "ugly", we encourage remixing it to your liking.

Also, from a previous "this sub is going downhill" discussion:

Yes, there is something you can do, in increasing orders of complexity:

  • Vote on content. Seriously.
  • Go to /r/dataisbeautiful/new and vote on content. Seriously. The first 10 votes on a reddit thread count equally as much as the following 100. Your vote counts more if you catch a bad plot early.
  • Start posting good content that you would like to see. There is an endless supply of good visuals, and they don't have to be your OC as long as the graphic belongs to the author whose page you're linking. This site comes to mind if you want to dig in and start a daily morning post.
  • Start working on good content that you would like to display. A starting point, We have a monthly battle that we give gold for. Alternatively, practice in /r/DataVizRequests.
  • Provide to the mod team an objective, specific, measurable, and realistic metric with which to better modify our content standards. I have to warn you that some of our team is very stubborn.

Again. Have you tried:

  • Voting on submissions (how many of the "forgetting labels" are downvoted)?
  • Voting on /r/dataisbeautiful/new (same)?
  • Offering detailed, constructive criticism pointing out specific flaws or offering advice? Here is the last three comments you left in the sub (full text):
    • I do not understand how to intrepret high medium and low at all!
    • Where there any audio cues and responses?
    • So this tells me absolutely nothing.
  • Posted good content that you think is suitable for the sub from other sources?
  • Posted good OC content you feel is worthy of the sub?

Data gathered by me counting the cards by hand.

Graph has been made in Word 2016 more for fun actually than to count the cards, but yeah, was better than to sit around bored. Also my first visualization.

Have you tried using a Sankey diagram to generate your visual?

Original Poster3 points · 7 days ago

Data obtained by using reddit's search for "shitty" and looking by subreddit. Graphs generated by using Google sheets. Graphs compiled using Gimp.

Have you considered using stacked column graphs and not !pies? It's hard to compare multiple areas

Original Poster1 point · 7 days ago

I had not, I'll try that format later today

Also, the circlejerk sub for /r/DIY is /r/DIWhy, but i suppose it fits the theme though.

New CSS adjusted accordingly to reflect OC flair:

Quantile Range Background Color
Bottom 80% 1-5 OC #f0f9e8
Top 20% 6-9 OC #bae4bc
Top 10% 10-13 OC #7bccc4
Top 5% 14-39 OC #43a2ca
Top 1% 40+ OC #0868ac

What would be the best way to visualise a 10 column tabular data with each column being an attribute and each row being values.

That depends on what the data represents. Do you have example data, or a copy of the data headers?

How would I go about making that?

I am not familar with Python, or how specifically to design, but if you need some inspiration, that link should be sufficient.

What are you looking for that a simple Excel or LibreOffice spreadsheet can't do?

Would love a visualization showing rank in infant mortality rates, healthcare, lifespan, etc from all over the world!

A lot of that is already present on, provided my Max Roser. Give that page a look.

This is exactly what I thought too. It seem that when I hear about a house fire it is almost always caused by "improper disposal of smoking materials."

You can find the full report here, or within the sticky comment here.

They include numbers like source of the fire, including smoking statistics, on pages vi and vii.

This image is a part of a larger study on this subject matter. Since the original document is a PDF, we are allowing an image album to be posted in its place, since PDFs are quite cumbersome for most browsers. Below is the original study:

I wouldn't say it's a mental illness, but it's definitely a thing.
