What is a Line Chart? Line Chart or Line Graph is a basic type of diagram, which depicts information as series of data points connected by straight line segments. Line Charts depict quantitative metrics and assist one in visualizing changes of data over time intervals.
A Line Graph is used to compare two variables (independent or dependent) which can be plotted on a 2D graph to visually show how one variable is affected by another. The Line Chart is useful in displaying information or data that change continuously over the time. Line Charts allow one to effectively predict results of data, which are not yet recorded and also to self-regulate values of the main variable at each segment. Line Graphs are used in mathematics, statistics, business, mass media, and many other fields; they are also useful for visualization of data and results of experiments for reports and other documents.
How to draw a Line Graph with ease? The Line Graphs solution extends the capabilities of ConceptDraw PRO v10 with professionally designed templates, samples, and a library of vector stencils for drawing perfect Line Graphs.
The samples you see on this page were created in ConceptDraw PRO using templates provided with the “Line Graphs” solution. These documents demonstrate some of the solution's capabilities, and the results you can achieve.
All source documents are vector graphic documents. They are available for reviewing, modifying or converting to a variety of formats (Bitmap Image, PDF, PowerPoint Presentation or MS Visio) from the ConceptDraw Solution Park. The “Line Graphs” solution is available for all ConceptDraw PRO v10 users.
Example 1: Evolution of the Population
This example was created in ConceptDraw PRO using the Line Graphs Library from the Line Graphs Solution. An experienced user spent 5 minutes creating this sample.
A line graph displays information as a series of data points connected by line segments. This popular type of diagram is usually used to represent the change of a value over time.
Example 2: MENA's (Middle East and North Africa's) Real GDP Growth
This example was created in ConceptDraw PRO using the Line Graphs Library from the Line Graphs Solution. An experienced user spent 15 minutes creating this sample.
This example combines recorded and predicted data. Predicted data is clearly denoted to keep the diagram clear.
Example 3: The Value of the French Franc in 2007 Euros
This example was created in ConceptDraw PRO using the Line Graphs library from the Line Graphs solution. An experienced user spent 7 minutes creating this sample.
A line graph with regular proportions is easy to use on slides. You can change background, line, and text color easily to fit presentation style.
Example 4: Relative Price Changes
This example was created in ConceptDraw PRO using the Line Graphs Library from the Line Graphs Solution. An experienced user spent 10 minutes creating this sample.
This sample represents the line graphs of changes of prices depending by year for different groups of goods. Different coloring allows for easy visual assessment and comparison of the dynamics with one look.
Example 5: Number of Airlines Departures in the Given Years
This example was created in ConceptDraw PRO using the Line Graphs library from the Line Graphs solution. An experienced user spent 5 minutes creating this sample.
Line charts are incredibly helpful in various fields; they can be used to illustrate economic principles and trends. This chart depicts a period of seven years and the corresponding statistical data on the number of airline departures for each of these years.
