Data Visualization Best-Practices For Segmentation 2D

This data visualization presents how a given performance is spread two analytical axes. Very useful for instance if you want to check whether your portfolio of activity is well balanced.

Data visualization best-practices

  • Display a grid
    • Use the two analytical axes as column and row
    • Define the size of the bubble by the actual performance of this KPI for this combination of items
    • Provide additional details on performance with a mouse-over
    • Use color coding of the bubble to express the actual sign of the performance (in some cases, you might have a KPI for which the value is negative: you could then represent positive values in green and negative in red, the actual size of the bubble being thus defined by the absolute value of the KPI performance)
    • Order by KPI value descending
  • Allow the user to dynamically select the KPI he wants to analyze (for instance moving from a Revenue analysis to a Gross Margin analysis)
  • Allow the user to dynamically select the axes of analysis
  • Provide the ability to access the detailed figures in a simple cross-table
