Data-Driven Charts

Data-driven charts convey a graphic representation of numeric values. The different series within this category are to convey different messages: trends, volume, pieces of a whole, addition and/or subtraction, etc. Be sure you look at each series within the category when deciding what type of chart to use to present your data.

The charts within the series are consistent in appearance with each other and are consistent with the appearance of the other series. They are meant to be used together. You will notice that none of the charts are in 3D or other styles. This was a deliberate and strategic decision. Look at the FAQ concerning 3D treatments for data-driven charts for a full explanation of this decision.

The tutorials for the series within this category are particularly useful to get the result you need.
