A Mekko chart (or also known as Marimekko chart) is a two-dimensional stacked chart of stacked, contiguous bars—looking somewhat like a Marimekko fabric.
A Pareto chart, named after Vilfredo Pareto, is a type of chart that contains both bars and a line graph, where individual values are represented in descending order by bars, and the cumulative total is represented by the line.
A scatter diagram displays pairs of numerical data, with one variable on each axis, to look for a relationship between them. Scatter plots show how much one variable is affected by another.
A histogram is a graphical representation of the distribution of numerical data. It is an estimate of the probability distribution of a continuous variable (quantitative variable) and was first introduced by Karl Pearson.
Control charts, also known as Shewhart charts (after Walter A. Shewhart) or process-behavior charts, are a statistical process control tool used to determine if a manufacturing or business process is in a state of control.
Tornado diagrams, (also called tornado plots or tornado charts or butterfly charts), are a special type of Bar chart, where two bar charts are on either side of the same axis and data categories are listed vertically instead of the standard horizontal presentation.
Bump charts are generally used to view changes in rank over time very effectively. These charts are similar to rank charts but instead of showing some measure on the y- axis, they show ranking.
Slope charts are a great way to display a comparison between two data points. Slope charts play into our ability to judge slope fairly well.
A dumbbell chart compares values of measure(s). It’s an alternative visualization that illustrates the change between two data points. In a horizontal direction, dumbbell charts look similar to weights, and also referred as DNA chart, or barbell chart.
A pyramid chart has the triangular shape that divides it into different sections.Each section has a different width from the others and contains related data fields placed together. Generally, it is useful when items need to be arranged in a way that shows hierarchical structure.
Waffle charts are a great way to display 0-100% KPI attainment. It displays parts-to-whole contribution very well. Waffle charts are similar to the donut or pie chart. Since it does not involve angles, one can easily and accurately compare KPIs attainment.
Jitter plots allow you to separate overlapping marks on a view. Jitter plots are also called as wheat plot. They add extra spaces on a view and separate marks into different columns. This reveals hidden data and makes it easy to visualize distributed data points.
