  1. Hi,

    I’m a fan of heat maps, or these area box plots that you using. My favourite application is the finviz stock market heatmap found here (finviz.com/map.ashx?t=sec) although I should point out that if you look carefully, you’ll see that they have not kept up with changes in the S&P 500 since they first came up with the design… but I digress.

    In this case, you are forcing the reader to click back and forth in order to compare time periods. Surely a simple line or bar chart would have shown the story with even more detail in a single chart?

    Best,
    cj
