Make smart presentations

Today we had to design a website for a financial industry client, where everywhere tabular data were scattered and making appearance ugly. Chris made several attempts repeatedly in excel sheet to decorate tables with different ways, but were failed to make some robust solution of the data presentation.

At last, he approached me for final solution. I took a glance over the data and found that there are numbers in a set rhythm. I suggested him to devise agreeable class intervals for chart formation. Fortunately, he succeeds to formulate a comprehensive bar chart in vertical presentations. Now data were looking more beautiful without distractions in web page appearance.

Advantages with Charts and Graphs

When he had finished all data with different and appropriate forms of graphs and charts, his all pages became more alluring and quickly scan-able without getting boring with the hips of data. Now, I have some simple questions regarding to data presentation such as:

  • Which sort of data presentation makes the information easy to absorb?

  • Should have any scope to make comparative presentations to convince audience in favor of one product or service?

  • Shall we incorporate more texts to illustrate the outcome of a survey?

  • How we can make the presentation of intricate data live, and easy to scan, on the site?

  • Which tools are available to make data presentation in effective manner?

After some brainstorming with my team, I had concluded possible answers for broad range of data intensive website designing. Let’s have a brief look at that solutions.

  1. It is obvious fact that only tabular presentation of data can’t makes web page sumptuous, readable and easy to quickly absorb the information. Therefore, we need help of charts in different formats like Pie chart, Bar charts, Area charts, and Scatter plot.

  2. Circular format of chart/data presentation is highly useful when you want to illustrate proportion so we can use Pie charts in 2D or 3D formats to make visual appealing data view. Here we have many opportunities to use percentage format of data, easily comparative, against many numbers of fragments. Today 3D presentations are trendy.

  3. Bar charts are easy for quick scanning because they offer us to make comparative presentation for more than two sets of data using different colors in vertical format. Same the way horizontal format of Bar charts allow us to place longer texts such as questions of survey along with bars with relevant values. This way we can draw rapid inferences with minimum scrolling.

  4. I have prolonged experiences with charts and graphs since the beginning therefore, I never get confusion when data have multiple variables and long list of categories. I select scatter plat techniques to place such intricate data in a visually attrselected ways using contrasting colors for the dots. Apart from this Area charts, or Line charts, are usable format to create differentiation in varying data categories.

  5. The best tools are available in the market to make data conversion into graphs and charts such as:

    1. Illustrator, that will offer you show tool menu where you can select the Graph tool and customize the look and feel of your graphs according to the nature of your data.

    2. Numbers are decent option to make 3D presentation of your data with nearly eight 3D options and simple procedure to convert your spreadsheet into charts with few clicks in dropdown of charts menu in toolbar.

    3. Excel, is good at some extent of complexities in data where you can use Insert menu to select charts option to make quick presentation of the chart and graph forms of data.
