Avoid pie

… charts, that is.

We’ve had some “debates” here at the office about the best types of graphs, charts, or other visual means of portraying data (Word clouds anyone?).  We even had a few posts (here and here) last year when we disagreed with Seth Godin’s three laws of graphs.

I was amused when I saw this post from the Future Place Blog about pie charts.  We agree that, except for the simplest of data, pie charts are usually a bad idea.

Perhaps the movement is growing!
