    I think the “heat map” of the vertebrae series is one of my favourite graphics. Colour can add another dimension to a graph or dataset allowing it to contain and convey more information. Even in this example, where technically it doesn’t increase the amount of information, its judicious use enhances readability and understanding (for tri-chromats anyway).

    This has been a great series, Matt. It’s really only been of general interest for me but hopefully people writing and reviewing papers will take some of these ideas on board and help make their work more accessible for those who don’t work in the field. I see this as having application beyond papers on sauropods, perhaps as wide as papers on ornithodirans, or even archosaurs.

    LOL!

    I don’t have such grand ambitions. If anyone beyond the hardcore brachiosaur workers finds this stuff useful, that’s gravy.
