An area chart is a lot like a line chart, except the space between the line and the x-axis is shaded or colored to show quantitative data over time. Like a line chart, area charts usually depict a time series relationship. Stacked and overlapping area charts are also commonly used to show changes in multiple variables or the contribution of each variable to a total over time. Area charts are useful for when you want to communicate an overall trend, rather than individual values. You can create stacked area charts if you want to illustrate and compare two or more variables over time.
More specifically, area charts are best used when you need to: compare the trend/proportion of each category, do a part-to-whole analysis, compare a small number of categories and know how big the change is. Don’t forget, using Displayr’s area chart maker, you can easily customize your area chart with different colors and sizes. Pick your colors carefully for maximum readability, especially when creating a stacked area chart. When you’re done, simply export your area chart and share it with whoever you want!

Whether it’s pie charts (another classic!) or Sankey diagrams or the always cool scatterplots, Displayr can help you transform your data into whatever story you want to tell! And just like the bar charts, you can customize colours, sizes and fonts and have a play with Displayr’s cool features.
