Getting into the head of the chart designer

A long view of hurricanes

This chart by Axios is well made. The full version is here.


It's easy to identify all the Cat 5 hurricanes. Only important ones are labeled. The other labels are hidden behind the hover. The chart provides a good answer to the question: what time of the year does the worst hurricanes strike. It's harder to compare the maximum speeds of the hurricanes.

I wish there is a way to incorporate geography. I'd be willing to trade off the trajectory of wind speeds as the max speed is of most use.
