create the simplest graph that conveys the information you want to convey
focus on visualizing patterns or on visualizing details, depending on the plot
select meaningful axis ranges
data transformations and carefully chosen graph aspect ratios
can be used to emphasize rates of change for timeseries data
plot overlapping points in a way that density differences show
do not connect data points unless it is meaningful to do so
aggregate larger datasets in meaningful ways
keep axis ranges as similar as possible to compare variables
select an appropriate color scheme based on the type of data
