  • No problem Ben. I assumed that the largest values where on a 2nd axis. But since the 2nd axis isn't shown nor is it referenced it creates confusion. As a general data viz rule of thumb I tend to shy away from them and especially in this case the viewer automatically attempts to compare the magnitude of the 3 lines which is nonsense since they have different scales.
    I threw together a different version that shows a line chart with the smallest values visible and you can still compare the different lines.
    If it's more space that's needed then an extra page doesn't really cost anything ;) My 2c anyways..

  • @victorblaer Victor, thanks for the feedback. The chart on page 6 uses two axes - the number of total businesses in the world is on one axis; the addressable market for mobile POS and the number of projected actual users is on a second axis. If we hadn't done this, the smaller series wouldn't have been distinguishable.

    You are right that the Visa symbol is not their current corporate logo; all those network brands are clip art drawings designed to look like cards.

  • The chart doesn't make any sense on page 6. X value is 2017 and y value is 18, 39 and 304 respectively, with 39 and 304 occupying the same Y space. The Visa logo on page 11 is an outdated version also

  8. 8. Mobile POS in Europe U.S. merchants are proving that mobile POS is far more than a micro-merchant phenomenon. We expect to see this same up-market trend flourish in Europe in 2013. Major Merchants Using Mobile POS Case Study: Apple Store • Mobile POS is Apples primary POS; clerks use an iPod and card reader sleeve to process sales anywhere • In U.S., Apple uses an IPS/Datecs sleeve; in Europe, it uses Ingenicos iSMP sleeve • Digital receipts available• A 2011 study of 32 large U.S. retailers found that 63% were • Apple has been using mobile using mobile POS or planning to do so by 2012.
