Line Charts

Line

Line Charts display a series of data points on a grid, connected by straight lines. They are often used to display a trend in data over intervals of time. Lines are not necessarily representative of any data between connected points. Line charts can be single-series (one line), or multi-series (multiple lines). On a multi-series chart, lines are differentiated by color.

 

Spline

Spline charts are a stylistic variation of a Line chart. Data points are connected by an interpolated curve. They are often used to display a trend in data over time, with estimated data between points. Spline charts are created in the same manner as Line charts.

 

Area

Area charts are a variation of a Line chart. The area below each line is colored to represent cumulative data. They are often used to compare cumulative totals over time. On a multi-series chart, each series is given a distinct color, and the colors blend where series areas overlap. Area charts are created in the same manner as Line charts.

 

Spline Area

Spline Area charts are a stylistic variation of an Area chart. Data points are connected by an interpolated curve, and the area below each curve is colored to represent cumulative data. They are often used to compare cumulative totals over time, with estimated data between points. On a multi-series chart, each series is given a distinct color, and the colors blend where series areas overlap. Spline area charts are created in the same manner as Line charts.
