Hello, Rose again! It’s time for the last Weekly Chart of 2023.
On this blog, it’s traditional to end the year with a Weekly Chart dedicated to the visualizations that you, Datawrapper users, published in the past twelve months. With just a few days left to go, the numbers are in for 2023…
Some things that stand out to me this time:
For a bonus this year, we decided to look at your use of text annotations. Originally, annotations were supported in only a few chart types, and they got pretty consistent use there. Then at the end of 2020, we released a big update that made annotations more responsive, easier to edit, and available for several more map and chart types.
All chart types have had good uptake of the improved annotations. But you've embraced the annotated scatterplot like nothing else, using the new annotations in more than half of published scatterplots for two years running.
All these visualizations are made by you and other Datawrapper users. We in the office have been busy too: releasing new features and improvements, answering thousands of support messages, hosting webinars and book clubs, writing blog posts and Academy articles. This Weekly Chart series even celebrated its 300th installment! Our team has continued to grow and we're looking forward to welcoming many of you at our first conference this coming March. Here's to more great charts in 2024!
That's it for this year — see you next Thursday for the first Weekly Chart of the new one.
