2015 November – Dear Data Challenge

On the lines of dear data (http://www.dear-data.com/)  where two courageous women

switched continents get to know each other through the data they draw and send across the pond

Brittany Fong (@BFongData) took the initiative to take it wide and far. In her words:

Contrary to how we normally think about data, dear data isn’t about the numbers being visualized as accurately as possible.  I mean obviously we don’t want you to just make stuff up but the expectations for dear data are about stepping out of the box, doing something you’re not used to, and being creative

I have joined the bandwagon, and this is what I could muster to draw by hand … yeah it takes a lot of courage to ditch your favorite visualization tool

Dear Data

Here is the same thing, done by the machine

2015 Nov – Food – Ul Haq

(I was only able to recreate the third chart by hand, using slightly different color scheme)

In summary, we collected food related data for a week, and then analyzed it. I used the Australian Survey Classification System to classify all food items and then presented it in a stacked bar chart

Here is the summary stats for the chart:

Summary Data

and the same summary stats, on the back of the chart

2015 Nov - Food
