An Underrated Technique To Create Better Data Plots
While creating visualizations, there are often certain parts that are particularly important. Yet, they may not be immediately obvious to the viewer.
A good data storyteller will always ensure that the plot guides the viewer's attention to these key areas.
One great way is to zoom in on specific regions of interest in a plot. This ensures that our plot indeed communicates what we intend it to depict.
In matplotlib, you can do so using 𝐢𝐧𝐝𝐢𝐜𝐚𝐭𝐞_𝐢𝐧𝐬𝐞𝐭_𝐳𝐨𝐨𝐦(). It adds an indicator box, that can be zoomed-in for better communication.
