Data Visualization for Project Failures

The Information Aesthetics blog presents a nice way for visualizing certain kinds of data. As you can see from the image below, the chart displays three kinds of data simultaneously:X-axis data, such as time seriesY-axis data, such as a set of scoresSize data, governing magnitude for the data being representedIn effect, this visualization adds time-series and magnitude-series to a standard bubble chart.

The Information Aesthetics blog presents a nice way for visualizing certain kinds of data. As you can see from the image below, the chart displays three kinds of data simultaneously:

  1. X-axis data, such as time series
  2. Y-axis data, such as a set of scores
  3. Size data, governing magnitude for the data being represented

In effect, this visualization adds time-series and magnitude-series to a standard bubble chart. The example provided in the Information Aesthetics blog relates to social media, but I could easily see this being used to plot causes of project failure over time.
