Overview of some standard chart types and their subtypes. Such as bar, column, line, pie, area, scatter and spider.
Edraw Max includes a set of standard chart templates which are smart, interactive and vector-based. You can change the chart symbols' appearance, style and color according to your requirement.
Column charts show data changes over a period of time or illustrates comparisons among items.
Clustered column compares values according to categories.
Cylinder column is available with a cylinder style in the column.
Stacked column shows the relationship of individual items to the whole, comparing the contribution of each value to a total across categories.
100% stacked column compares the percentage each value contributes to a total according to categories.
Bar chart illustrates comparisons among individual items.
Clustered bar compares values across categories.
Cylinder bar is also available with a 3-D visual effect to place focus on comparing the values.
Stacked bar shows the relationship between individual items to the whole.
100 % stacked bar compares the percentage each value contributes to a total across categories.
Single bar compares the percentage of items.
Line chart shows trends in data at equal intervals.
Line displays trends over time or categories. It is available with markers displayed at each data value.
Stacked line states the trend of the contribution of each value over time or categories.
100% stacked line shows the trend of the percentage each value contributes over time or categories.
Area chart emphasizes the magnitude of change over time.
Line area displays the trend of values over time or categories.
Stacked area demonstrates the trend of the contribution of each value over time or categories.
100% stacked area shows the trend of the percentage each value contributes over time or categories.
Step area is useful for displaying changing numeric values over a period of time.
Pie displays the contribution of each value to a total. It always shows only one data series and is useful when you want to emphasize a significant element in the data.
3D pie is available with a 3-D visual effect, as shown in the following chart.
Multi-Pie presents the contribution of each value to a total while emphasizing individual value.
Pie of pie is a pie chart with user-defined values extracted and combined into a second pie.
Doughnut chart shows the relationship of parts to a whole; however, it can contain more than one data series.
Doughnut displays data in rings, where each ring represents a data series.
Multi-level doughnut is like an exploded pie chart, but it can contain more than one data series.
XY chart shows the relationships among the numeric values in several data series, or plots two groups of numbers as one series of XY coordinates.
Scatter compares pairs of values. For example, the following scatter chart shows uneven intervals of two sets of data.
Spider chart compares the aggregate values of a number of data series.
Spider displays changes in values relative to a center point. It can be displayed with markers for each data point.
Area spider chart covered by a data series is filled with a color.
Contains special shapes for creating gauge charts.
Circular gauge is commonly used in the form of compasses, stop watches, clocks or speedometers.
Linear gauge is widely used in the form of thermometers or progress tracking devices.
