Sparkline with period indicators Part of FusionWidgets XT
A spark line chart is similar to a line chart, except that it is a word-sized graphic used inline with text. Data values are plotted as data points that are then connected using line segments. Given that it is used inline with text, the size of the chart is same as that of the text surrounding it. This chart is not rendered with the x and y-axes. It is often used on executive dashboards to show several KPIs in a single view.
- Use a spark line chart for showing variations in a measurement in a simple way.
- Use distinct colors to highlight specific data like the open, close, high, and low values.
- Add target value as a trendline that will help to identify how far is the achieved value from the target.
- Determine an appropriate aspect ratio (ratio of the width of a shape to its height) to enhance the visualization.
