100% stacked columns in 3D Part of FusionCharts XT
A 100% stacked column 3D chart represents all data categories as a percentage of the total magnitude. The percentage gives a clear indication of parts to a whole comparison as compared to actual numeric values which may be difficult the compare at a glance. The chart plots datasets vertically but on top of each other instead of the clustered side-by-side placement. The length of each stack in a column is proportionate to its value. Datasets in a stack are distinguished by their color; an icon legend is rendered at the bottom of the chart to map data plots to their corresponding data categories; the icons can be clicked to show/hide data plots. The chart is popularly used to show comparative data like the sales of different products in different regions, website traffic along with acquisition channels, and so on.
- Start the y-axis at 0 to accurately reflect the proportionate difference in data.
- Show the sum value on top of each column, adding up values for different categories plotted on the chart.
