Area Chart - Basic

The basic Area Chart has many of the same advantages as a line chart. It is one of the most effective charts for showing trend information on directional KPIs.

Unlike a line chart, the area underneath the trend line is filled out, making the information easier to see.

TIPS: When presenting a single directional KPI in a chart, an area chart is better than a line chart. The area chart fills up the space, making the trend line more apparent.

This chart is great for combining with a target line, as the filled area lets users easily see if the target has been reached.
