Which chart to use

In most of my talks I present quantitative evidence of patterns, data exploration or results. But which is the right way to show that evidence? Worry no more: the Extreme Presentation Method helps you to decide with this chart chooser (click here to download the pdf)

My impression is that this chart chooser is good for small data. For big data some of the charts render useless. For example, read the insightfull post Don’t use Scatterplots by Chris Stucchio on why is not a good idea to use scatterplots to show relationship between bivariate data when you have large amounts of data.
