Who doesn’t dream about going to the land down under? So if your curious about who is coming or going in Australia, planning a mini-vacation, or perhaps a permanent vacation, the Australian Tourism infographic from WeWish has the information for you!
The only thing we like more than being on holiday is planning a holiday! Find out where everyone is heading this year. This infographic shows people moving in and out of Australia. It also shows the top destinations to visit when down under.
I love how clean this design is! The information in sequence from top-to-bottom tells a good story about tourism in Australia. However, a couple of the data visualizations are a bit hard to understand:
- In section 1, the percentage share of global arrivals is the red circle for each country, and theoretically these are all portions of a whole 100%. It’s very hard for the viewer to compare the sizes of the circles between countries. The nested circles visualization style shown for each country is a visualization really intended to compare those particular circles among themselves.
- In section 3, the green arcs visualize the percentage change from 2009 to 2010, but an arc visualization is intended to show a portion of 100% like a pie chart. None of these specific values exceeded 100%, but that type of data could have and the visualization would have broken down because it’s not appropriate for this type of data. You could have a 200% increase from the prior year.
A couple things missing from the bottom of the design. The URL to the original infographic posting, and a copyright statement.
