This Interactive Visualization Explains If Daylight Saving Works For You

Whether you love it or hate it, we’re currently stuck with Daylight Saving Time. If you’re on still on the fence, though, this interactive visualization explains what impact the clock changes have on the number hours of daylight you get to enjoy, based on your daily routine.

Put together by Keith Collins for Quartz using data from the Astronomical Applications Department of the U.S. Naval Observatory, the interactive lets you select what time you typically wake up and go to bed. That shifts the axes, to show you how much light you get to see (in blue) and how much dark you experience (in black). Then, you can press a button to see what difference Daylight Saving has on your experience. What’s the verdict?
