Driver behaviour analysis

This week I was working on a fleet management dashboard (from data generation and masking to UI) in Power BI and had a really hard time with the design this time. The original report that we wanted to improve contained only one chart, a heatmap in Excel and that was a core element that needed to be included. The idea to recreate this table in a BI tool gave me the creeps (even more when I started experimenting with colors), but at the end, it turned out to be pretty cool with this blue-pink diverging scale.

Wanna know how we’re making a marketing demo dashboard? It’s all about top-down planning, let’s have a glimpse at how it looks the best, and adjust the data accordingly. That’s why I added a radar chart, as it’s shit hot and we’d never use it anyway… But my favorite part was creating the dumbbell chart that I’m a big fan of these days. This could be another story about “How to hack Power BI”, cause you’d never believe, that I drew the lines in Illustrator and then added the scatterplots on top one by one with fixed axes. Check out the interactive version in the Data Stories Gallery.
