Hi, this is Rose. I write for Datawrapper, and this week I’m bringing back an end-of-year blog tradition.
For several years running now, the last Weekly Chart of December has been dedicated to looking back at the visualizations you, Datawrapper users, published in the past twelve months. In particular, it’s become something of a tradition to update one specific chart breaking down the types of visualization that were most popular each year.
Here — unless you all go on New Year’s Eve mapping spree — are the final numbers for 2022.
A few observations stand out to me:
These official visualization types can barely capture the inventive ways we’ve seen you all use Datawrapper this year. And it was a busy year for us as well: we answered thousands of support messages, published over a hundred blog posts and Academy articles, and released several major new features. Our team grew too, to 22 members! We’re looking forward to more great things from everyone in 2023.
Thank you all for a wonderful year! We’ll see you next week for the first Weekly Chart of 2023.
