If you read any Stephen Few for more than a minute, you’d realize he emphatically stresses clear and simple-looking visualizations. Well, he does in the one O’Reilly book I have of his where he spends a considerable amount of time pointing out what NOT to do.
With this in mind and looking for an excuse to keep playing with Awesome Tableau Software, I decided to take another look at the Healthcare Costs Data previously talked about at Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’.
This time, I restricted the data to the state of Florida (I’m here) and decided to drop the map. The hopeful intent of this visualization is to provide the needed information as fast as possible. As before, I cannot embed here but provide the link instead. Just click on the images to play with visual.
And for perspective, this is what Stephen did.
