Shelves for lines

Overview of shelves for CDP Data Visualization Line visuals.

A line visual has the following shelves:

X Axis

This is conceptually the X axis. Use a Dimension for a horizontal line or a Measure for a vertical line.

When using multiple fields, the last field defines the axis, while the preceding fields trellis the graph in columns.

Y Axis

This is conceptually the Y axis. Use a Measure for a horizontal line or a Dimension for a vertical line.

When using multiple fields, the last field defines the axis, while the preceding fields trellis the graph in rows.

Colors

To stack lines by category, add a Dimension field to this shelf.

This shelf displays only one field on the graph. Additional fields appear only in the Tooltip.

Tooltips

Add Measure fields from the Data menu for additional information in the graph's Tooltip.

This shelf accepts multiple fields.

Drill
