Discover the common chart types and find out some other approaches to combining them with graphics for maximum effect.
- [Narrator] As I mentioned at the outset of this chapter, … and I'm going to mention it again, … slides are not the best place to display complex data. … And if you're able to use other ways … to display your information, … such as images to make your point, … then that is what you should do. … The three most common graphs or charts … that do work on slides though, … are the pie, bar, and line, … with some variations of course, … such as horizontal and vertical, … in forms of the bar and the doughnut variants and so on. … So let's have a look at good and bad ways of using those. … So here's where we're starting with the pie, … that's pretty straightforward the way it is, … not too much wrong with that at all. … But if you take it into the 3D realm, look at that, … not only is this quite unattractive, … but it does also skew your perception of the data. … Look at the 29% wedge there, … that looks almost larger than the 35%, pretty much, … even though that clearly should not be the case at all. …
