Election in BC Part 2 Colors!

In the first part I have prepared the data for the visualizations, I was complaining about colors in the existing article so let’s start by making this all look like a circus!

Preparing custom color scheme –

I did mention that I didn’t like the colors int he existing news story so I have tried the Color Scheme Generator, in the PowerBI tips and tricks blog (Really recommended!!!) recommended by @Chass in his video Better use of colors in Power BI (Guy in a cube channel). I have created a scheme of my own!

 After Choosing the colors, I have downloaded the color theme to my computer and Upload it to my PowerBI desktop.

The scheme was imported using the Switch Themes  in the home ribbon tab.

I love the Tree Map visualization, also a heat map comes in mind. For the parties in each region it seems like a good fit even without the regions actual map. Another version of the same is the brick map. The simple bar chart gives more accurate information but the Tree Map can tell the same story. I have decided to put them side by side for my first report page just to see what makes more sense for people?

You might be able to vote on the one you like the best… (part 4?)

There is one more subject that is covered by the map visualization.

So I have started creating the new visual in a separate page, but then I have realized, PowerBI can tell me all this by simply clicking on “Insights”.

What do I have to do for that? To Publish it – Will explain in Part 3
