Nightingale [Florence]…analyzed army mortality rates. [She] uncovered a stunning fact: Most of the soldiers in the Crimean War hadn’t died in combat. They’d died of ‘preventable diseases’—precisely the sort caused by terrible hygiene. Clean up the hygiene and you’d save lives. Nightingale adroitly realized that tables of numbers and text would be too hard to parse. They needed, she said, a data visualization—‘to affect thro’ the eyes what we fail to convey to the public through their word-proof ears.’ Her invention was the elegant ‘polar area chart,’ a new variant of the pie chart: Each slice of the pie showed deaths for one month of the war, growing larger if the deaths increased, and color-coded to show the causes of death. Fans called it the ‘rose diagram,’ because it looked like a flower.
