In today's data visualizations, annotations are few and far between. When you do see them they are all styled the same and only discussed as part of the final product in a context-setting mode.

There are many more ways they could be used to better communicate with our audiences. In this post I discuss two topics Annotation Design and Annotation Modes to explore more uses for annotations.
