What are the different chart types?
With Zerion Reports Charts, you can create many different types of charts by simply dragging and dropping the required columns into the design area. Have a look below for a look at the various chart types.
Pie charts are used to represent a percentage of your data. A pie chart can be converted to any of its equivalents like ring chart, funnel chart, bar chart, line chart, scatter chart, area chart or web chart.
A ring chart or a "doughnut" chart is used to represent data in rings.
Bar charts are generally used to categorize data or represent two or more metrics of a particular category. They display values as individual bars whose height is determined by the value plotted and grouped by each category.
A Stacked chart allows you to analyze the patterns and trends in your data by comparing the parts of your dataset to its entirety.
Scatter charts are used for plotting and comparing numeric values, such as scientific, statistical, and engineering data.
A line chart is used to analyze data trends across a particular time period.
The combination chart is a combination of a bar and line chart. It is used primarily when you have mixed data to represent.
Area charts shade the area beneath the lines and therefore help you more easily compare data magnitudes. They are mainly useful for emphasizing the change in metrics across time.
The funnel chart is used to represent a progressive flow/reduction of a business metric across different phases.
Web charts help study the comparison between different data series. It compares the values of a number of data series represented with data markers in proportion with a center point.
