Visuals are inspired by Jugal K. Patel's NY Times article, "How 2016 Became Earth’s Hottest Year on Record" and has a number of insightful and interactive visuals, as well as detailed commentary behind them. Data source: NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies (.csv).
Both visuals use the same diverging colour scale, which is based upon the recorded average temperature of that month and year, against the 1951-1980 average amount.
The native Power BI scatter chart can't do date-based axes, so it's something I also wanted to explore. The radial chart is designed to show the months of the year in a circular fashion, whilst being able to see the years span outward from the origin. The date range slicer also demonstrates that these particular visuals respond to the correct filter context.
