## Chart Types

Posts related to my documented research into the different charts types that I’ve discovered.

While I’m no longer updating the main page with new visualization methods, I’m still continuing to research into different chart types, which you can find in these posts below.

## Chart Selection Guide

Which chart type do I select to communicate a particular message and/or analyse the property of a dataset?

## Further Exploration #14: 3D Treemaps That Use Extrusion

Looking at projects that have used 3D Treemaps that use extrusion to visualise an additional variable.

## Further Exploration #13: 3D Treemap Spheres and Cylinders

Continuing on at exploring 3D Treemaps, this post takes a look at Treemaps that use spheres or cyclinders in their design.

## Further Exploration #12: 3D Treemap Cubes

Looking through 3D Treemaps that use a cube design, such as the Information Cube, the Treecube, and the Magic Treemap Cube.

## Chart Combinations: with Arc Diagrams

Here’s a list of different charts that can be combined with an Arc Diagram to display additional data.

## Further Exploration #11: Bar/Column Chart Variations

Looking at: Lollipop Chart, Triangle Bar Chart, Back-To-Back Bar Chart, Progressive Bar Chart, Waterfall Chart, Change Bar Chart, Pareto Chart and more.

## Chart Combinations: Proportional Area Charts

Here are 34 different charts that you can combine a Proportional Area Chart with.

## Further Exploration #10: Proportional Area Chart Variations

Exploring some of the different ways Proportional Area Charts can be used.

## Further Exploration #9: Isochrone Maps (Travel Time Maps)

Exploring the many variations of Isochrone Maps from both the past and present.

## Chart Combinations: Tile Grid Maps

I wanted to document all variations of Tile Grid Maps that I’ve come across and also draw combinations that I think are possible.

## Further Exploration #8 – Triangular Plots

This post explores the various kinds of triangular (tri-axes) graphs that are currently being used. Most notably, Ternary Graphs are their variations.

## Further Exploration #7Area Graph Variations

In this post, I will look through the many types of Area Graphs that exist, that I haven’t touched on in the past.

## Further Exploration #6Cartograms

Instead of displaying data over geographical regions, Cartograms communicate data values by manipulating the forms of those geographical regions.

## Further Exploration #5Multidimensional Boxplot Variations

While I’ve already covered Box Plots, there are a series of Box Plot variations that can display the distribution of data over two, three or even more dimensions.

## Further Exploration #4Box Plot Variations

Originally introduced and popularised by the American mathematician John Wilder Tukey, a Box Plot (also known as a Box and Whisker Plot) is a type […]

## Further Exploration #33D Maps

In the last two posts (#1 and #2), I specifically looked a range of 3D charts, but didn’t included any 3D maps to display geographical […]

## Further Exploration #2 3D Charts (Part 2)

In Further Exploration #1, I looked at charts that visualise data in 3D. In this post, I will continue to showcase and catalogue the different […]

## Further Exploration #1 3D Charts (Part 1)

While it appears that I’ve covered a huge number amount charts on the main page, there is still an abundance of different charts out there that I have […]
