This is the unofficial follow up to the Choosing the Right Chart Cheat Sheet. I just had to share more about the power of data storytelling.
Data storytelling is the ability to effectively communicate insights from a dataset using narratives and visualisations. A lot of what you do academically and professionally in STEM fields will involve some degree of data storytelling and it is a key skill to prioritise developing. The two best ways to develop a skill is (1) get exposed to good examples and (2) practice, practice, practice.
