    Are you familiar with Tufte? It would be well worth your time to read his book(s) if you haven't.

      Green or Blue for the best and Red for the worst?

        Right, it's usually green for best.

          I don't actually understand what I'm looking at with the arc display. It's not immediately apparent what's being compared and which is better than which. Seems like a normal scatter plot would be better.

              Improvements? Maybe when we will get labels on the axes. Which is not really an improvement. Just, uhm, scientific standard.

                Yeah, they look impressive at first glance, but then you realize it's not that easy to read, probably because they are upside down. Usually these things are more useful with the base at the bottom and not at the top left corner. Also, I have to point out once again that most of these graphs and tables don't make me want to look at them for more than 5 seconds, mainly because of outdated design and bad colors all around. When I have some spare time I might do some hacking on PTS to make it more pleasant to the eyes.
