2D Area Chart Cumulative

From Grapheme wiki


An Cumulative Area Chart is a line chart with the areas below the lines filled with colors. In a cumulative area chart, values of different series are stacked to display the contribution of each column data to a total value. It can show the markers for each value, the lines connecting the measurement points and the area covered by the series. The categories appear along the vertical axis.


As typical example, consider the population growth over time in different areas of the globe. In this case, each area of the globe represents a different series, we can consider the years or decades as categories on the horizontal axis and the population values on the vertical axis. Comparing different areas we see how population grows in each area of the globe relatively to other areas, considering whole graph area together, we can estimate the population growth in the whole globe.
