Area Chart Mod for Spotfire® 1.2.2 (Spotfire 11.5+)

1 Screenshot


Visualize the development of quantitative values over a time period.



The area chart mod is similar to a line chart, except that the area below the lines is filled with colors to represent and compare the evolution of quantitative values over a time period. Values of each category are displayed on top of each other, allowing to understand the evolution of both the total of a numeric variable, and the importance of each category.

Data Requirement

To make the area chart mod work properly, the underlying data must be formatted in a certain way. A data table with at least two columns is required. One column should contain the positions on the X-axis where each line will be plotted. A second column should contain the vertical contribution for each point, one column per series to be plotted.

For detailed information on data requirements, the available settings, and an example of how to set up the visualization, read the mod's community article.
