Correlation Coefficients in Data Science and Machine Learning (in One Picture)

In my first post on correlation coefficients, I outlined the differences between five popular coefficients: Pearson's, Spearman's Rank, Kendall's TauGamma, and Yule's Q. There are many others to choose from, depending on what you're doing with your data. This one picture is a comprehensive overview of less popular correlation coefficients you may come across.
