This topic provides an in-depth overview of the series concept in UXChart, and discusses the series types supported as well as certain capabilities and restrictions of each series.

On this page:

Series Mode

In UXChart, there are more than one way to define series, you can put single series or multiple series for the same series type, for example line series. Alternatively, you can use multiple series from different series types when you combine several chart types with line or step line to highlight data trends or to show variance.

When you add a line or other chart series onto bar, scatter, or other chart types, the resulting chart is called a combined chart. Note that only axis-based chart types that can be combined together. This means that you cannot combine pie chart and column chart, or radar chart and line chart.

Series Types

There are more than twenty series type that you can choose and use. You can see list of types, description, image and list of feature that supported by each series describe below.

Bar

BarSeries is a series with rectangular bars with lengths proportional to the values that they represent. BarSeries provide a visual presentation of series data. The bar will be plotted horizontally.

BarSeries can also be used for more complex comparisons of data with grouped bar charts. A BarSeries is very useful for recording certain information whether it is continuous or not continuous data. BarSeries also look a lot like a histogram, however BarSeries have spaces between columns (unlike histograms) as values are independent of each other.

Line

LineSeries is a type of series which displays information as a series of data points connected by straight line segments.It is a basic type of chart common in many fields. It is an extension of a scatter graph, and is created by connecting a series of points that represent individual measurements with line segments.

A line LineSeries is often used to visualize a trend in data over intervals of time thus the line is often drawn chronologically

Area

An AreaSeries is a type of chart which displays information as a series of data points connected by straight line segments, the first and last start will be pin point from zero Y position value, and last point will be closed it shape by joined with first point.

AreaSeries emphasizes the degree of change over time. It also shows the relationship of the parts to a whole.

Step Line

StepLineSeries are a specialized form of line charts that use only vertical and horizontal lines to connect the data points. These charts are used when the data is not continuous in nature but characterized by a jump from one level to another.

They are preferred over line charts in such cases because they form a step-like structure and bring out the intermittent pattern (the rise and fall in data) better. it can be used for Monitoring Systems,Financial Analysis,Sales Analysis,Price Change Analysis,Weather Analysis

They can be used as an alternative to ordinary line. it can be used in marketing, scientific research, and economics area.

Pie

PieSeries is a circular chart divided into sectors, illustrating proportion. In a PieSeries chart, the arc length of each sector is proportional to the quantity it represents. When angles are measured with 1 turn as unit then a number of percent is identified with the same number of centiturns.

Together, the sectors create a full disk. It is named for its resemblance to a pie which has been sliced. The size of the sectors are calculated by converting between percentage and degrees or by the use of a percentage protractor. Pie chart only support single series

Radar

In a RadarSeries, data points are drawn evenly spaced, clockwise around the chart. The value of the point is represented as the distance from the center of the chart, where the center represents the minimum value, and the chart edge is the maximum value. Each series is drawn as one complete circuit of the chart. The chart connects these points with straight or curved lines, as you specify.

So, a RadarSeries is essentially a line chart wrapped into a circle, where the y-axis goes from the center of the chart to the perimeter, and the x-axis is the perimeter of the chart, starting and ending at the 12:00 line. One application of RadarSeries is the control of quality improvement to display the performance metrics of any ongoing program,

They are also being used in sports to chart players' strengths and weaknesses, where they are usually called spider charts. If you have multiple series, only same category in each series that will be plotted.

Candle Stick

CandleStickSeries chart is a combination of a LineChart and a BarChart, in that each bar represents the range of price movemet over a given time interval. It is most often used in technical analysis of equity and currency price patterns.

In order to create a candlestick chart, you must have a data set that contains open, high, low and close values for each time period you want to display. The hollow or filled portion of the candlestick is called " body" The long thin lines above and below the body represent the high/low range and are called "shadows" .the high is marked by the top of the upper shadow and the low by the bottom of the lower shadow. If the stock closes higher than its opening price, a hollow candlestick is drawn with the bottom of the body representing the opening price and the top of the body representing the closing price. If the stock closes lower than its opening price, a filled candlestick is drawn with the top of the body representing the opening price and the bottom of the body representing the closing price.

Compared to traditional bar charts, many user consider candlestick charts more visually appealing and easier to interpret. Each candlestick provides an easy-to-decipher picture of price action. Immediately a user can compare the relationship between the open and close as well as the high and low. The relationship between the open and close is considered vital information and forms the essence of candlesticks. Hollow candlesticks, where the close is greater than the open, indicate buying pressure. Filled candlesticks, where the close is less than the open, indicate selling pressure.

Stock

StockSeries or OHLC (open-high-low-close chart) is a type of chart typically used to illustrate movements in the price of a financial instrument over time. Each vertical line on the chart shows the price range (the highest and lowest prices) over one unit of time, e.g., one day or one hour.

Tick marks project from each side of the line indicating the opening price on the left, and the closing price for that time period on the right. The bars may be shown in different hues depending on whether prices rose or fell in that period.

You must have a data set that contains open, high, low and close values for each time period you want to display. It similar to CandleStickSeries.
