Line Graphs

What is a Line Chart? The Line Chart or Line Graph is a basic type of diagram, which depicts information as a series of data points connected by the straight line segments. The Line Charts depict quantitative metrics and assist one in visualizing changes of data over time intervals. Visually, the Line Chart resembles the tops of a mountain range and this comparison is not accidental, because with the help of Line Charts you can really imagine a wide range of data or "mountains" of data in a graphical form, and make a lot of useful conclusions.

A Line Graph is used to show and 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 Charts are useful in displaying information or data that change continuously over the time. They allow one to predict effectively the results of data, which are not yet recorded, to self-regulate values of the main variable at each segment, and also to visualize data and results of experiments for reports and other documents. Line Graphs are used in mathematics, statistics, business, mass media, and many other fields.

With the help of a Line Chart there can be visualized the variations, dynamics, trends, relationships of various parameters, there can also be displayed the movement of currency in a specific period of time, the fluctuations in shares, also tracked the growth rate of the company, the ratio of profits and expenses, compared the values of key indicators in different time intervals, and correlated the time and distance. Several curves can be plotted on a single Line Graph, allowing you to compare visually the dynamics of different indicators or the same indicator in different industries, regions, branches, departments, etc. By contrasting two Line Charts, you can compare the sales of the company in a certain period of time in a matter of minutes, to analyze revenues and expenses, accounting balance, and other parameters, to track changes over a certain time interval.

How to draw a Line Graph with ease? The Line Graphs Solution extends the capabilities of ConceptDraw DIAGRAM with professionally designed templates, samples, and a library of vector stencils for drawing perfect Line Graphs. Turn your data into a Line Graph with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software and use it in any document, presentation, report, share it with your team, etc. Building several curves on the same chart, it is recommended to paint them with different colors, this will allow to separate them visually from each other and will make it easier the data comparison. Choosing the colors yourself, you can give the personality and originality to your graphic, as well as to ensure the color matching of your graph to the color scheme of the document in which it will be used.


There is 1 library containing 5 objects in the 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 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 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.

Template: Line Graph

This Line Chart template is ideal for quick-start in drawing a Line Chart. Filling the table with new data will lead to automatically reflection the changes on chart, equally as the change of colors in the table’s head.

Example 1: Line Graph — Relative Price Changes

This example was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM 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 is used for easy visual assessment and comparison of the dynamics with one look.

Example 2: Line Graph — Number of Airlines Departures in the Given Years

This example was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM 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.

Example 3: Line Graph — France Export of Goods and Services

This example was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the Line Graphs Library from the Line Graphs Solution. An experienced user spent 5 minutes creating this sample.

This Line chart demonstrates the data from the European Economic Forecast for the exporting of different goods and services by France. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM lets to design similar graphs for other countries in minutes and then visually compare them.

Example 4: Line Graph — Steps Walked in a Week

This example was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the Line Graphs Library from the Line Graphs Solution. An experienced user spent 10 minutes creating this sample.

This sample shows the steps walked in a week in form of Line Chart and is based on the statistical data from the website of the Bureau of Labor Statistics, U.S. Department of Labor. Varied colors are used for additional visuality, especially on the segments that practically match.

Example 5: Line Graph — Percent of Students a 36 on ACT

This example was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the Line Graphs library from the Line Graphs solution. An experienced user spent 5 minutes creating this sample.

This Line graph sample represents the percent of students achieved a 36 on ACT (American College Testing) at the period from 1997 to 2011, the data are marked as points on chart and connected with line segments.
