Configure an Area Chart SQL Template
An area chart depicts a time-series relationship. Unlike line charts, area charts can also visually represent volume. Information is graphed on two axes, using data points connected by line segments. Basic area charts depict the data using transparency to overlay the areas. Stacked area charts presents the data areas without overlaying - displaying part-to-whole relations by showing the constituent parts of a whole one over the other. See also:
