My first diagram is a little different from a typical chart. It is a venn diagram and is very simple. It is easy to read and is supposed to get the message to the reader across quickly. I chose bright colors to get the reader’s attention. I chose a venn diagram because I wanted to highlight just how many cities the two categories had in common. It seemed to be the easiest way to get this information across.
For my revised infographic, I chose to do a pie chart. This is a very common chart so it is very recognizable. I chose similar bright colors for this revision as well. It has a clearly labeled key which makes it easier to read.
Honestly, I don’t like my second graphic. I thought that my first one was most appropriate for the type of information I am trying to include. The pie chart doesn’t really work because there is no 100% to compare to. It also makes it seem like there are three different groups, but really there are two groups and a few items that are shared by both groups. I gave the revision a try but I decided that my first attempt is much better.
