Chart types and subtypes

Version:

Only available versions of this content are shown in the dropdown

You can include charts in summarized reports.

The following chart types and subtypes are available:

  • Area – Displays data points with filled space rather than points, curves, or lines. The following subtypes are available:
    • Overlaid – Values are displayed as separate mountain ranges, usually with the property with the lowest overall values in front.
    • Stacked – Values are displayed as layers in the chart at each data point.
    • 100% – The total of all values at each data point equals 100% of the height of the chart.
  • Pie – Displays data as a circle that is divided into segments. The following subtypes are available:
    • Normal – The pie segments rest against each other.
    • Exploded – The pie segments are pushed outward slightly from the center, allowing some white space between segments for readability.
    • Doughnut – The center of the chart is uncolored. The segments form a circle, at a distance from the center of the chart, with the edges of contiguous segments touching. The segments illustrate how various child data contribute to the overall data.
  • Bar – Displays property values as horizontal bars. The following subtypes are available:
    • Clustered – Bars are grouped together. For example, divisional sales grouped by quarter.
    • Stacked – The bars of a given group (divisional sales per quarter) are attached so that the resulting bar represents total sales for the quarter.
    • 100% – The bars of each group are attached, but the total for each resulting bar is always 100% of the width of the chart.
  • Column – Displays values as vertical bars. The following subtypes are available:
    • Clustered – Columns are grouped together. For example, divisional sales grouped by quarter.
    • Stacked – The columns of a given group (divisional sales per quarter) are stacked together so that the resulting column represents total sales for the quarter.
    • 100% – Each group's columns are stacked together, but the total for each resulting column is always 100% of the height of the chart.
  • Line – Displays values connected by a line. The following subtypes are available:
    • Curved – Changes in values are represented by a curved line.
    • Segment – Changes in values are indicated by sometimes-sharp changes in the angle of the line. Values over time (or some other factor) are represented by the line.
    • Step – Changes in values are represented as steps either higher or lower, with the first entry as a horizontal step representing the first value.
    • Reverse Step – Changes in values are represented as steps either higher or lower, with the first entry as a vertical step from the first to the second value.
    • Horizontal – Changes in values are represented as points along a horizontal line.
  • Gauge – Displays a single value as a meter reading. If the gauge chart includes thresholds, a manager can quickly review the chart to determine whether the value is within a targeted range. The following subtypes are available:
    • 270 degree arch
    • Speedometer
    • Progress
    • Half dial
    • Half arch
    • Dial
    • Linear
    • Horizontal LED
    • Vertical LED
    • Cylinder
    • Thermometer
    • Progress

  • Defining associations for map charts

    For map charts that display in reports on each class, you must define how to associate known map regions, or areas with property values in that class. If these associations are not defined correctly, the data might not display, or might display and be associated with the wrong regions.

  • Adding or editing charts from the report definition rule form

    You can add a chart to a summarized report by launching the Chart Editor from the report definition rule form.

  • Adding or editing charts in the Report Editor

    Display a graphical representation of the report data by adding a chart to the report in the Report Editor. The report requires aggregated data to include a chart.

  • Editing a report

    You can modify a report to change the way the report displays information, or filter the data for different audiences by using the Report Editor.
