Stream Graph

Version 9



A Stream graph is a cross between a horizontal Stacked Area graph and a Funnel graph. Series data is optional in Stream graphs. Series in a Stream graph, if included, are centered. They do not share the same baseline and do not overlap. These graphs also do not show value data except upon mouse-over. Therefore they are most effective for showing relative differences between stages rather than representing exact amounts.

This graph type is exactly the same as a Stream Funnel graph (classified in the Chart Picker as a Pie/Funnel graph rather than an Area graph) but is shown horizontally rather than vertically.  

The following example shows a Stream graph without series data:



Whereas the next example shows the same chart with series data applied:

Powering Stream graphs

Stream graphs require two columns or rows of data from your DataSet—a category column or row containing the names of each stage, and a value column or row containing the corresponding values for each stage. You can also add a column containing series data if you want. For information about value, category, and series data, see Understanding Chart Data.

In the Analyzer, you choose the columns containing the data for your Stream graph. For more information about choosing data columns, see Applying DataSet Columns to Your Chart.

For more information about formatting charts in the Analyzer, see KPI Card Building Part 2: The Analyzer.

The following graphic shows you how the data from the category, value, and series columns in a typical column-based spreadsheet is converted into a Stream graph:

Customizing Stream graphs

You can customize the appearance of a Funnel graph by editing its Chart Properties. For information about all chart properties, see Chart Properties.




General > Style

Determines the style for a Stream graph, either Curved (default) or Flat. The example shows a Stream graph that uses the "Flat" style.
