RE: Week 7: Across U.S. Companies, Tax Rates Vary Greatly
I pretty much liked the design of this visualization. Although it took me more to get what it is showing (before reading Roshani points) and understand it is interactive. But after finding the interactive element I find it amusing. Maybe small hint somewhere about its interactivity would be helpful. As others also suggested search functionality could get some improvements. Also more data could be provided on popup info as taxes could be varying a lot and just proving an average doesn't seem enough to me.

I agree with the critique's points. The visualization has clear legends and color information. Mouse hovering effect also provides interactivity to the design. Use of channels, i.e. size to determine the tax-rate is very effective. Grouping of companies based on industries allows a user to compare two companies working in the same trade. As pointed out earlier, the search box should say "No info available" if a company is not enlisted.
