How to Draw a Line Chart Quickly

A common line chart is a graphical representation of the functional relationship between two series of data. A line chart that is created by connecting a series of data points together with a straight line is the most basic type of a line chart. A line chart can be used for depicting data that changes continuously over time. It is extensively utilized in statistics, marketing and financial business.

How to Add and Edit Text on Connectors

The new ConceptDraw Arrows10 Technology is a powerful diagramming technique that powered the way business drawing created. ConceptDraw PRO gives you some tools for connecting shapes: Direct Connectors, Smart, Arc, Bezier, Curve and Round Connectors. Direct Connectors are direct lines from the point to the point. Smart , Arc, Bezier, Curve and Round Connectors are almost the same as Direct Connectors. However, they automatically move around other objects. You can use Chain, or Tree connection mode for connection of multiple objects with any type of connectors. ConceptDraw PRO allows you to add and move text on a connector the same way that you add and move text on other any object.
The vector stencils library "UML state machine diagrams" contains 35 symbols for the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software.
"The state diagram in the Unified Modeling Language is essentially a Harel statechart with standardized notation, which can describe many systems, from computer programs to business processes. In UML 2 the name has been changed to State Machine Diagram. The following are the basic notational elements that can be used to make up a diagram:
(1) Filled circle, pointing to the initial state.
(2) Hollow circle containing a smaller filled circle, indicating the final state (if any).
(3) Rounded rectangle, denoting a state. Top of the rectangle contains a name of the state. Can contain a horizontal line in the middle, below which the activities that are done in that state are indicated.
(4) Arrow, denoting transition. The name of the event (if any) causing this transition labels the arrow body. A guard expression may be added before a "/ " and enclosed in square-brackets ( eventName[guardExpression] ), denoting that this expression must be true for the transition to take place. If an action is performed during this transition, it is added to the label following a "/ " ( eventName[guardExpression]/ action ).
(5) Thick horizontal line with either x>1 lines entering and 1 line leaving or 1 line entering and x>1 lines leaving. These denote join/ fork, respectively." [State diagram (UML). Wikipedia]

"A chart can take a large variety of forms, however there are common features that provide the chart with its ability to extract meaning from data.
Typically the data in a chart is represented graphically, since humans are generally able to infer meaning from pictures quicker than from text. Text is generally used only to annotate the data.
One of the more important uses of text in a graph is the title. A graph's title usually appears above the main graphic and provides a succinct description of what the data in the graph refers to.
Dimensions in the data are often displayed on axes. If a horizontal and a vertical axis are used, they are usually referred to as the x-axis and y-axis respectively. Each axis will have a scale, denoted by periodic graduations and usually accompanied by numerical or categorical indications. Each axis will typically also have a label displayed outside or beside it, briefly describing the dimension represented. If the scale is numerical, the label will often be suffixed with the unit of that scale in parentheses. ...
Within the graph a grid of lines may appear to aid in the visual alignment of data. The grid can be enhanced by visually emphasizing the lines at regular or significant graduations. The emphasized lines are then called major grid lines and the remainder are minor grid lines.
The data of a chart can appear in all manner of formats, and may include individual textual labels describing the datum associated with the indicated position in the chart. The data may appear as dots or shapes, connected or unconnected, and in any combination of colors and patterns. Inferences or points of interest can be overlaid directly on the graph to further aid information extraction.
When the data appearing in a chart contains multiple variables, the chart may include a legend (also known as a key). A legend contains a list of the variables appearing in the chart and an example of their appearance. This information allows the data from each variable to be identified in the chart." [Chart. Wikipedia]
The vector stencils library "Time series charts" contains 10 templates: 3 column charts, 3 bar charts, 2 line graphs and 2 dot plots. All these charts are Live Objects displaying the data from external data source files.
Use these chart templates to design your business performance digital dashboards using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software.
The example "Design elements - Time series charts" is included in the Time Series Dashboard solution from the area "What is a Dashboard" of ConceptDraw Solution Park.
