This GIF was created initially for a PPT infographic presentation. The format featured here is a looping GIF box and whisker chart animation. This animation could also be used as a JSON format for the web (perhaps on a landing page).

This animation can be customized with your own brand colors and utilized in video overlays or GIF format. 

This animation goes through a full cycle every 10 seconds.

why use a box and whisker plot

When are some scenarios that you might actually use a box and whisker plot?

One scenario is if you want to compare multiple sets of data. For example, you might want to compare the ages of two different groups of people. A box and whisker plot would be a great way to visualize this data.

Another scenario is if you have a lot of data points and you want to find outliers. Outliers are data points that are far away from the rest of the data. Box and whisker plots can help you to quickly find and identify outliers.

In general, box and whisker plots are a great way to visualize any type of statistical data. They provide a quick and easy way to see the distribution of your data, as well as any outliers.

what colors to use

Color considerations for your box and whisker animation are important. You want to make sure that the colors you use are easy to see and distinguish from one another.

One way to do this is to use a different color for each set of data. For example, if you were comparing the ages of two different groups of people, you could use one color for group 1 and another color for group 2.

Another way to use color is to use different shades of the same color. For example, you could use a light shade of blue for one set of data and a dark shade of blue for another set. This can be helpful if you have a lot of data sets to compare. In case you’re wondering, this particular color scheme is called monochromatic.
