Most times visualising data is a process of finding the most appropriate way to explain data while still being true to the underlying data. Over the past few weeks we have been visualising the Covid-19 pandemic in South Africa and we have had to make dozen of visualisation decisions. We've also had dozens of suggestions from generous supporters which we have tried to include. Sometimes we get it right, sometimes we don't, but we're always working to improve what we have despite the relatively lack of data being released by the department of health. These pages are an opportunity to share some of the visualisation decisions we have made and some of the things we have learned along the way.
