Basic Picture Graphs

This solution extends the capabilities of ConceptDraw PRO v10.3.0 (or later) with templates, samples and a library of vector stencils for drawing Picture Graphs.

A Picture Graph (image chart, pictorial chart) is the type of a bar graph, which represents data in various categories using pictures. Typically, each picture graph is used in a certain area for the best visual impact. In the field of economics and finance, you can use a picture graph with columns in the form of coins, while for population comparison statistics you can use a chart with columns in the form of mannequins.


There is 1 stencil library containing 4 vector objects in the Basic Picture Graphs solution.
