# Basic Line Graphs

This solution extends the capabilities of ConceptDraw DIAGRAM with templates, samples and a library of vector stencils for drawing Line Graphs.

A Line Graph shows how one variable is affected by another as it increases or decreases. Line graphs are used to compare two variables. Each variable is plotted on a 2d graph. A Line Graph is most useful in displaying data or information that changes continuously over time. Use a Line Graph (Height to Text) when you want to self-regulate values of a main variable in each segment. Line graphs enable the viewer to predict the results of data not yet recorded. They are useful for presentations.

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

## Examples

There are a few samples that you see on this page which were created in the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM application by using the Basic Line Graphs solution. Some of the solution's capabilities as well as the professional results which you can achieve are all demonstrated here on this page.

All source documents are vector graphic documents which are always available for modifying, reviewing and/or converting to many different formats, such as MS PowerPoint, PDF file, MS Visio, and many other graphic ones from the ConceptDraw Solution Park or ConceptDraw STORE. The Basic Line Graphs solution is available to all ConceptDraw DIAGRAM users to get installed and used while working in the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and drawing software.

## Example 1: Basic Line Graph — Evolution of the Population

This example was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the Basic Line Graphs Library from the Basic 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 DIAGRAM using the Basic Line Graphs Library from the Basic 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 DIAGRAM using the Basic Line Graphs library from the Basic 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.

## What I Need to Get Started

Both ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and drawing software and the Basic Line Graphs solution can help creating the numerical data you need. The Basic Line Graphs solution can be found in the Graphs and Charts area of ConceptDraw STORE application that can be downloaded from this site. Make sure that both ConceptDraw DIAGRAM and ConceptDraw STORE applications are installed on your computer before you get started.

#### How to install

After ConceptDraw STORE and ConceptDraw DIAGRAM are downloaded and installed, you can install the Basic Line Graphs solution from the ConceptDraw STORE.

#### Start Using

To make sure that you are doing it all right, use the pre-designed symbols from the stencil libraries from the solution to make your drawings look smart and professional. Also, the pre-made examples from this solution can be used as drafts so your own drawings can be based on them. Using the samples, you can always change their structures, colors and data.
