Our goal is that everyone can read all information from our charts quickly and easily. Unfortunately, this is often prevented by cluttered visualizations. Choose a chart and think about what you do not necessarily need without any loss of information. Are coloured backgrounds and different colours, 3D effects, legends, frames and guide lines really necessary? Visualize leanly and reduce the complexity of graphics step by step.
This rule and others are explained in detail in the reportingimpulse Academy. Get Insights in our Visual Data Analytics Beginner’s Package here. In addition to our most important rules for dashboarding, it includes learning videos on the corresponding topic, book recommendations, reportingimpulse SharePics and much more.
