(Ch)Art of the Month: Data into Art
Published in May 2020 newsletter

One of the great things about working at Infometrics is the view of Wellington Harbour from our office window. Unfortunately, I haven’t seen it for over two months, and don’t expect to for a little while longer. So I thought I’d cheer myself up by recreating it in a scatterplot – more Art than Chart!

The lockdown was pretty seamless for Infometrics as many of us worked some days from home already and our infrastructure had no problems with the increased use. We’ve been pretty busy over this time, with webinars, media commentary and special reports on top of our usual workload. Through Level Two most of us will continue to work from home enjoying a variety of different views. We won’t be visiting clients on site for a little bit longer either, but as usual we’re always at the other end of the phone or videocall.


This (ch)art was inspired by a post from Datawrapper’s Elana Levin Schtulberg. I used a different preprocessing workflow with GIMP, ImageMagick and R [gist].
