Here is the original viz :
- Clear Legends on specifying what color in the circle means in terms of spends
- Design is eye-catching with too much of information for an individual to understand
- Source of data is mentioned
- Title which is self explanatory about the viz
Here is what I did:
- After trying various methods to visualize this data, I finalize one approach of showing Top 10 countries by spends
- Additionally I wanted show trend on spends by this countries and also compare 2 years i.e. 2015 vs 2014 to show the increase in spends by countries on R&D (Exception was India as dataset didn’t have 2012 to 2014 data)
- While building the viz and trying to figure out visualization I came across this viz from Rody Zakovich and tried to replicate the similar design.
Here is the Image of the visualisation I created (Click on image to get interactive version):
Happy Data Visualisation!!!!
