Vertical Bullet Graph Part of PowerCharts XT
The vertical bullet gauge is used to compare a measure against a preset value while also showing the qualitative range the measured value falls in. It also indicates if the value is good, bad or ugly, and all this in a limited space. The gauge is rendered as a vertical bar, divided and color-coded according to the qualitative ranges decided. It is used to display a single key measure. A vertical line, the target line, is drawn within the vertical bar as an indicator of the measured value. This gauge can be used on a dashboard to compare data like the revenue earned against the targeted revenue.
Best Practices :
- Use contrasting colors to highlight how the data is progressing.
- Use one color in different shades to show the progression of ranges on the gauge scale.
