​​1 dataset 100 visualizations

A simple dataset — no more than six numbers — visualised in one hundred different ways. Obviously, some of these visualisations are better than others, and some are near pointless or quite misleading, but that is exactly what makes this overview so instructive to look at. Usually when you see graphics being used to make a point, you don’t see all the roads not taken, and are probably not aware of how different choices would have changed the effect of the graphic.
