Line graphs are most often used to represent trends over time. Data items in a Line graph are represented by points, and these are connected by a line. Some types of Line graphs, such as Grouped Bar with Line graphs, combine lines with elements found in other types of graphs.

The following tables list the types of Line graphs available in Domo. You can click a thumbnail image to see a larger image.

Horizontal Line Graphs

Line graphs are usually displayed with the line running left to right, with the value scale on the vertical axis and the category scale on the horizontal axis. There are 12 such chart types in Domo (counting 5 line-bar combination-type graphs, which in the Chart Picker in Domo are found under the Bar Graphs section).

Chart Type

Description

Example

Line graph

Basic Line graphs use a single trendline to display data.

For more information, see Line Graph.

Symbol Line graph

line-symbol-small.png

A Symbol Line graph is a sub-type of the basic Line graph in which symbols are included at each data point.

For more information, see Line Graph.

Curved Line graph

A Curved Line graph is a sub-type of the basic Line graph in which points are connected by curved lines instead of straight lines.

For more information, see Line Graph.

Curved Symbol Line graph

A Curved Symbol Line graph is the same as a Curved Line graph except that it includes symbols at each data point.

For more information, see Line Graph.

Step Line

A Step Line is a sub-type of the basic Line graph in which step lines are used instead of straight lines.

For more information, see Line Graph.

Multi-Line graph

A Multi-Line graph is a basic Line graph with one or more additional lines that represent comparison trends.

For more information, see Multi-Line Graph.

Grouped Bar with Line graph

A Grouped Bar with Line graph is a combination of a Line graph and a Grouped Bar graph. It includes two y-axes, one on each side of the graph. One of these is used to measure the values along the line, and the other is used to measure the values of the bars. This type of graph is useful in situations in which you need to show a trend along with the specific quantities or amounts associated with that trend.

For more information, see Grouped Bar with Line Graph.

Grouped Bar with Symbols graph

 

A Grouped Bar with Symbols graph is the same as a Grouped Bar with Line graph, except that it includes symbols instead of lines.

For more information, see Grouped Bar with Line Graph.

Stacked Bar with Line graph

vertical-bar-stacked-plus-line-small.png

A Stacked Bar with Line graph combines the features of a Line graph and a vertical Stacked Bar graph. There are two y-axes, one on the left and the other on the right. The y-axis on the left measures the values along the line, and the one on the right measures the values of the bars.

For more information, see Stacked Bar with Line Graph.

Stacked Bar with Symbols graph

A Stacked Bar with Symbols graph is the same as a Stacked Bar with Line graph, except that it includes symbols instead of lines.

For more information, see Stacked Bar with Line Graph.

Grouped and Stacked Bar with Line graph

vertical-bar-grouped-and-stacked-plus-line-small.png

A Grouped and Stacked Bar with Line graph is a combination of a vertical Grouped and Stacked Bar graph and a Stacked Bar with Line graph. As in a Stacked Bar with Line graph, two value scales are present and series can appear as either lines or bars; this chart type also gives you the ability to divide series segments between bars, as in a Grouped and Stacked Bar graph. As with standard Grouped and Stacked Bar graphs, this chart type is useful when you want to compare a primary series against several secondary series; however, because it includes a trendline, it is more compatible with time-series data than a regular Grouped and Stacked Bar graph.

For more information, see Grouped and Stacked Bar with Line Graph.

Running Total Line graph

In a Running Total Line graph, each data point shows the cumulative value of all data points up to that point. If more than one series is present, each series displays as its own individual line.

For more information, see Running Total Line Graph.

Vertical Line Graphs

Less commonly, Line graphs can be displayed with values on the horizontal axis and categories on the vertical axis. If the graph exceeds the vertical confines of the display area, scroll bars appear so users can scroll to see more of the graph. There are 5 types of vertical Line graphs in Domo.

Chart Type

Description

Example

Vertical Line graph

vertical-line-small.png

A Vertical Line graph includes one or more lines that represent comparison trends. The graph in the first example includes only one trendline so the graph appears solid blue. The graph in the second example includes multiple lines.

For more information, see Line Graph.

Vertical Curved Line graph

vertical-line-curved-small.png

A Vertical Curved Line graph is a sub-type of the basic Vertical Line graph in which points are connected by curved lines instead of straight lines.

For more information, see Line Graph.

Vertical Step Line graph

vertical-line-step-small.png

A Vertical Step Line graph is a sub-type of the basic Line graph in which step lines are used instead of straight lines.

For more information, see Line Graph.

Vertical Symbol Line graph

vertical-line-symbol-small.png

A Vertical Symbol Line graph is a sub-type of the basic Vertical Line graph in which symbols are included at each data point.

For more information, see Line Graph.

vertical_line_symbol_kpi_example.png

Vertical Curved Symbol Line graph

A Vertical Curved Symbol Line graph is the same as a Vertical Curved Line graph except that it includes symbols at each data point.

For more information, see Line Graph.

Miscellaneous Line Graphs

Though technically a horizontal Line graph, the Spark Line graph is included here because it is vastly different in many respects from standard Line graphs. This graph type is found in the Other Charts category in the Chart Picker.   

Chart Type

Description

Example

Spark Line graph

spark-line-small.png

A Spark Line graph is essentially a Line graph with no axes (providing a cleaner, uncluttered experience) and a built-in gauge that by default shows the degree of change between the first and last data points in the graph. Spark Line graphs are excellent for quickly showing relative rises and falls in data over time. 

For more information, see Spark Line Graph.
