Data Visualization Checklist

Authors: Evergreen, S. and A. K. Emery
Publication date: 2014

This checklist is meant to be used as a guide for the development of high impact data visualizations. It allows you to rate each aspect of the data visualization by circling the most appropriate number, where 2 points means the  guideline was fully met, 1 means it was partially met, and 0 means it was not met at all. n/a should not be used frequently, but reserved for when the guideline truly does not apply. For example, a pie chart has no axes lines or tick marks to rate. Refer to the Data Visualization Anatomy Chart on the last page for guidance on vocabulary.
