Did you know that all charts are composed of a small set of visual cues?

Scale
S
Length
L
Angle
G
Area
A
Volume
V
Color
C
Connection
N
Multiplication
M

For example

A pie chart displays values using angle.

And a bar chart shows value with length.

Combinations

Different visual cues can be combined in creative ways to create hybrids.

Below are some examples using both angle and length to display values:

This project aims to catalogue all possible charts and is composed of three parts:

1) A book which contains more that 450 illustrated charts.

2) A code library that enables you to declaratively construct any visualization.

3) Examples from the book that have been created using the code library.

Preorder the book to get access to all examples.
