#MakeoverMonday 2020 Week 49: Transatlantic Alliance

Posted by

For this week Charlie picked an interesting topic: The perception among the population of how positive the relationship is between the US and Germany. The data came from a survey and the entire article can be found here.

Here is the original visualization:

What works well:

  • The topic is interesting and hence the title grabs my attention
  • The line charts are fairly simple
  • Sources and notes are included

What could be improved:

  • The wording makes it difficult for me to wrap my head around what the data is showing me
  • The flags are distracting and unneccessary

What I did:

  • Focused on the positive responses
  • Aimed to show the change over time in a heatmap
  • Tried to simplify the message while still making it very clear to understand
