Data Requirement

The bump chart can be used to visualize any dataset that contains items ranked at different time points. In order to make it work properly a data table with at least three columns is required:

  1. One column should identify the items, for example, names of teams, countries, people or objects.
  2. One column should contain a time point, for example years, or weeks.
  3. One columns should contain the rank of the team, country, person or object at different times.
  4. The visualization mod is added to the analysis.

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.
