      Here's the conclusion section of an excellent article:

      Conclusions
      To wrap up, these are the lessons we’ve drawn from revisiting the popularised vaccine visualisations:

      1. Use sequential colour schemes when presenting continuous values;
      2. Consider colour blindness before committing to a colour scheme;
      3. When presenting specific values is important, don’t use colour to represent those values;
      4. Only show enough data to effectively and honestly tell your story.
