Makeover Monday | Week 21 | 2019: Fatal Bear Attacks in North America

Posted by

For this week Andy chose a dataset about bear attacks that ended fatally. The original viz comes from Vox:

What works well:

  • Nice simple viz
  • Bar chart is easy to read
  • Showing clearly the months when no fatalities occured
  • Clear title and subtitle

What could be improved:

  • The bear icon distract my eyes a bit from the number labels
  • I’m not sold on the orange color

What I did:

  • A minimalist bar chart this week as I’m seriously short on time at the moment
