For trends where the sum matters as much as its parts
Our area charts are similar to our line charts, but with a few special features
Stacking your absolute values lets your readers see how the distribution of shares changes over time. Simply click on “Stack areas” and see your data in a fresh light.
Annotations are great to highlight data points or to add custom labels – and in Datawrapper, you can add them with one click.
Here’s a detail you might not have noticed: When you hover over the yellow areas, you’ll find that the color of the tooltip text is darker than the area itself. We increase the contrast to the background, to make sure your readers can decipher your tooltips.
That’s one of many little details we implemented to keep your charts readable, no matter your design choices.
