How to Create a Rounded Bar Chart?

Rounded Bar Charts often help design a bar chart in an aesthetic way. To blend in to a smooth view for our customized visualization this technique can be leveraged. Bars continue to be a robust tool to compare values of categorical data, however with the curved endings we might encounter precision issues. We need to be careful of scenarios where the bar curves might extend it's endings below the minimum value, or above the maximum value. The steps below walk us through how to create a Rounded Bar Chart.

How to Create a Lollipop Chart?

Lollipop Charts offer a visual alternative to side-by-side bar chart, or a Gantt chart. It is basically a bar plot, where the bar is transformed in a line and a dot. A Lollipop Chart shows the relationship between a numeric and a categoric variable. The main advantage of a Lollipop Chart is it is much less cluttered as compared to a standard bar chart. Thus effectively we avoid a Moiré effect, which is a visual perception when viewing a set of lines or dots that is superimposed on another set of lines or dots. The presentation below shows how to create a Lollipop Chart.

How to Create a Barbell Chart?

Barbell Charts or Dumbbell Dot Plots illustrates the change between two or more data points. It is a composite chart with circles and lines, and exceptionally effective in illustrating changes or distance between groups of data points. The Barbell Chart compares categorical data, and uses circles to highlight values, and bars to measure the gap. The Barbell chart is also known as DNA chart, Gap chart, Dumbbell chart, and Connected Dot Plot. Below we can see the steps on how to create a Dumbbell Chart.

How to Create a Bar in Bar Chart?

Bar in Bar Charts stack one bar over another bar. The bars are customized with unique colors, and unique width, so that they are distinguishable from each other. Bar in Bar charts are useful for comparing measures for different periods, or showing progress towards a goal, when both bars have the same starting point. The steps to create a Bar in Bar chart are as below.

How to Create a Stacked Bar Chart?

Stacked Bar Charts allow comparison of components across categories. They are used to show how a larger category is divided into smaller sub-categories, and what the relationship of each part has on the total amount. Stacked Bar Charts help easily identify which series contributes for making one total bigger or smaller than another, compare Sales of USA Regions for a Store. However for bars far away from the axis, it becomes visually complex to compare their sizes.    ✍   A Stacked Bar Chart can be of 2 types, the Simple Stacked Bar Chart displays the full value of the bar with the corresponding Segment Values, whereas a 100% Stacked Bar Chart shows the percentage of every Segment in relation to the whole value. We can find the steps on how to create a Stacked Bar chart of both types below.

   ✍   Another approach to create a Stacked Bar Chart is demonstrated below. It is helpful when we want to display multiple measures contributing to individual members of a dimension. This approach can then be further modified to have a Simple or 100% Stacked Bar Chart like above. The steps to create such a Stacked Bar Chart with few selected measures are walked through below.

How to Create a Radial Bar Chart?

Radial Bar Charts allows us to create attractive visualization designs. The bars are displayed on a Polar coordinate system instead of a Cartesian system. In a Radial Bar Chart, the lengths of the bars cannot be used to compare values, as the bars on the outside will be longer than the bars inside for the same value. Radial Bar Charts can be used in a variety of scenarios to derive insights from data.

How to Create a Radial Column Chart?

Radial Column Charts are a variation of the standard vertical column charts. The bars are projected outwards from the center in this chart type. The heights of the different bars help determine outliers and provides details for comparative study. This chart type is difficult to read if the number of members increases or the data values are close to each other. Radial Column Chart can help create stunning visuals.

How to Create a Doughnut Chart?

Doughnut Charts are an alternate version of Pie Charts with a hole in the center. It helps to measure part to whole relationship. A Doughnut Chart offers improved readability by allowing the user to focus on the length of the arc of a slice, instead of the size of the slice like in a Pie Chart. The space inside the hole is often efficiently used for labelling the data and adding useful metadata. We can even display two or more sets of data by showing two rings instead of one, each ring with its own number of slices.

How to Create a Pareto Chart?

Pareto Charts help identify the vital (20%) inputs producing the maximum (80%) results. It effectively displays the inputs in order of importance. Vilfredo Pareto (1848 - 1923), noticed that 20% of the pea pods in his garden were responsible for 80% of the peas. Pareto expanded this principle to macroeconomics by showing that 80% of the wealth in Italy was owned by 20% of the population. The 80-20 rule, also known as the Pareto principle, was introduced in 1906.
   ✍   Above we saw how the % of Total Sales and % of Product Count are closely following the 80-20 rule. Now we will complete the Pareto Chart by adding the Sales of each Product Sub-Category in descending order to identify the members driving the highest Sales.

How to Create a Gauge Chart?

Gauge Charts are similar to Pie Charts, with the addition of a needle to indicate the data value. Gauge Charts help depict the change of a linear progressive value, or the change of different entities over a common parameter. Gauge Charts are widey used to illustrate Key Performance Indicators across all industry domains. The steps to create a Gauge Chart are detailed as below.

How to Create a Thermometer Chart?

Thermometer Charts help visualize the actual value of a measure as compared to a target value. The amount of completion can be easily deciphered by looking at the chart without even going into the details. A Thermometer Chart is very stylish and has an impactful presence in any dashboard. The chart is commonly expressed as a percentage of the whole, with a darker color representing the progress on a lighter colored space yet to be filled up.

How to Create a Span Chart?

Span Charts instantly reflect the difference between the values of two data points. The difference is either between the maximum value and minimum value of the same category, or between the values from two distinct categories. The endings of the Span chart are often formatted for appealing chart designs. A Span Chart is also known as Floating Bar Chart, Difference Chart, High-Low Chart, Range Bar Chart, etc. It creates space for adding more useful details by eliminating the bases of the chart.

How to Create a Waterfall Chart?

Waterfall Charts are a form of data visualization that help in understanding the cumulative effect of sequentially introduced positive or negative values. These intermediate values can either be time based or category based, and helps understand the flow how one balance moved to another balance. The Waterfall Chart is also known as Flying Bricks chart or Mario chart. Often in finance, it will be referred to as a Bridge Chart.
