37 Filters and No Place to Go

37 Filters

This was tweeted today by Kris Curtis (@CurtyCanViz). Thought I would share as food for thought. 😊

Today’s facepalm moment. So where do you draw the line at number of filters available on a dashboard? I’m like 4 or 5. Had someone come to me with a dashboard with 37 filters on it! Suggestions/advice to stop this type of behavior please #datafam #dataviz

Show them these two images, and ask them how much training is required for each. Car vs. Space Shuttle. We want users to easily engage with our data… no time for overly complex UI
