Line Plot

Line Plots are great for visualizing how numerical values change over time or according to generic sequences.

Required Features and Dimensions

Line plots can be built with or without a date feature. A simple 2D Lineplot can be created by mapping a date feature to the X-axis and a numerical feature to the Y-axis. Add either a numerical or categorical feature to the Z-axis to create a 3D line plot. By mapping a categorical feature to Color, we can create a visualization like the one below:


Line Plot settings, found on the top of the Mapping panel, allow you to change which dimension is being used to create multiple lines — either Color or Group By.┬áTo visualize multiple lines, map a categorical feature to the Color or Group By dimensions. Each category in that feature will have its own line in the visualization.
