Line Charts

Line charts typically use a line to connect the different data points in a series. Such lines are straight, splines or steps. Line charts are simpler and hence also let you visualize multiple series without overlapping like in a bar chart.

Here are the different types of Line Charts.

Line Chart

Line Charts join points on a plot using straight lines showing trends in data at equal intervals. Line charts treat the input as non-numeric, categorical information, equally spaced along the x-axis. This is appropriate for categorical data, such as text labels, but can produce unexpected results when the X values consist of numbers.

When rendered in 3D, the plot looks like a ribbon and hence such types are also referred to as Ribbon or Strip Charts.

The appearance of the lines and the points can be configured with options such as the colors used, thickness of the lines and the symbols displayed.
