Update: After a successful Kickstarter campaign where we raised over 1,000% of our goal, the cards are in production and you can now order a deck, an infographic, and our templates from our permanent website. Thanks for your support, lovely people.

Chart Chooser cards are simple and easy to use. They help you choose the best type of chart to display and format your data.


Each chart card shows you the common name of the chart type, a description, a visual example, when it is used, and what type of data set it’s best for.

The chart chooser deck has 51 cards, including 33 chart types organized into 6 data categories to help you quickly sort through the noise. 13 bonus cards help you sort through what people are looking for in data, and how to format your chart.


I’ve been using these cards in my data visualization workshops. They are an awesome tool to narrow down the wide world of chart choices and identify the right one for your data.

Want a deck? The cards are now available as part of a Kickstarter campaign. We offer different pricing levels with all kinds of awesome swag, including:

An infographic of the chart types available in the Chart Chooser Cards

An Excel file with every single graph within the deck, already made and ready for your data

A Tableau file with every single graph within the deck (Bless you, Andy Kriebel!)

One-year of access to my currently-closed-to-enrollment Data Visualization Academy

With all of these tools as your fingertips, you’re well on your way to being a Data Visualization Rockstar! Check out your options on the Kickstarter page.
