In my first year as a PhD student, I made the massive mistake to choose the wrong type of plot to present some results to my supervisor. Obviously, that constructive feedback is stuck into my mind and I’ll never forget it now:
Having great results is not enough, I also need to choose the right plot to present them.
In the meantime, I found this chart that I wish I had back then. I think it helps quite a lot when deciding which plot to use depending on your data.
Have you ever chosen the wrong type of plot to present your results? 😅
