Smooth Line Chart
In this article, we will explain how to create and customize a smooth line chart. So let's get started!
A smooth line chart is a variation of a line chart that uses a smoothing algorithm to create a curved line that passes through or near all of the data points in the chart. Smooth line charts are often used to display trends and patterns in data over time, similar to regular line charts. They can be particularly useful when the data contains a lot of small fluctuations or noise, as the smoothing algorithm can help to clarify the overall trend.
Here is an example of a smooth line chart with sample data:
In this example, a smooth line chart is used to show the temperature trend over time (e.g. months or years). The x-axis represents time, and the y-axis represents the temperature in degrees Celsius. Each data point on the chart represents the temperature at a specific point in time, and the curved line connecting the points shows the overall trend in temperature, with fluctuations in the data smoothed out.
The configuration shown illustrates how to map the time period on the x-axis and the temperature on the y axis in order to generate the line chart.
Infinity offers many customization options for your chart. To access these options, click on the customize tab in the chart builder screen. This will display a list of customization options.
Here is a list of notable customization options for the line chart.
- Use a consistent scale for the y-axis to accurately compare data points
- Consider using a legend to label multiple data series on the same chart
- Use a clear and concise title to describe the data being displayed
- Avoid cluttering the chart with too much data or unnecessary elements
- Use a meaningful and appropriate time scale for the x-axis (e.g., days, weeks, months, years)
