Framework: DD006 – dd006_v09
This chart is a variation of v08 and similar to how v06 presents data.
The column charts on this slide share column labels vertically. The top and bottom charts' labels are below the bottom chart. This chart configuration is good for comparing data between sets of charts. The first set is comprised of the top and bottom chart on left, the second set is the top and bottom chart in the center, etc.
When this many charts are on a page, it's best to select the type of data your presenting very carefully. Since the labels are very small under the horizontal baselines, you should probably choose to present timing, i.e., years, months, hours. If more spaces is needed for the text in the labels, switch to a bar chart configuration.
