15 Tips and Tricks to Make Your Charts More Understandable

This is the second blog in our series on design tips for better Charts. If you missed the first one, you can check it out at this link: 7 Tips to Improve Your Chart’s Readability.

In this blog, we will walk you through some useful tips and tricks to make your charts more understandable. In the upcoming blog, which is going to be the last blog in this series, we’ll provide tips to make your charts more aesthetically appealing. You can expect this blog to be available on July 16.

I have used the Syncfusion Flutter Charts widget to illustrate the tips in this post, but they are not limited to Flutter charts and are applicable to charts in any other platform as well.

Tip #1: Choose an apt chart type for your story

There are n number of chart types available to visualize data nowadays, like linecolumnpiescatter, and so on. You should carefully choose the appropriate chart type for your data story. Choosing the right chart type depends on the type of data and the message you wish to convey to users. So, before starting the design, it is important to have a clear understanding of the data you are working with.

For example, consider a scenario where you need to display a person’s monthly expenses by category, whose sum is 100%. For this, you should use a pie chart rather than a column chart because it provides a quick idea of how the data is distributed.

Choose Pie chart than Column chart to show data distribution

If you have two sets of data to be visualized and compared, it is better to use a column chart over a line chart. Column charts are always better for categorization and comparison.

Visualizing data with NGX-Charts in Angular

Data Science, Data Analytics, Big Data, these are the buzz words of today’s world. A huge amount of data is being generated and analyzed every day. So communicating the insights from that data becomes crucial. Charts help visualize the data and communicate the result of the analysis with charts, it becomes easy to understand the data.

There are a lot of libraries for angular that can be used to build charts. In this blog, we will look at one such library, NGX-Charts. We will see how to use it in angular and how to build data visualizations.

What we will cover:

  1. Installing ngx-chart.

  2. Building a vertical bar graph.

  3. Building a pie chart.

  4. Building an advanced pie chart.

A brief introduction about NGX-Charts

NGX-Chart charting framework for angular2+. It’s open-source and maintained by Swimlane.

NGX-Charts does not merely wrap d3, nor any other chart engine for that matter. It is using Angular to render and animate the SVG elements with all of its binding and speed goodness and uses d3 for the excellent math functions, scales, axis and shape generators, etc. By having Angular do all of the renderings it opens us up to endless possibilities the Angular platform provides such as AoT, Universal, etc.

NGX-Charts supports various chart types like bar charts, line charts, area charts, pie charts, bubble charts, doughnut charts, gauge charts, heatmap, treemap, and number cards.

Installation and Setup

1. Install the ngx-chart package in your angular app.

npm install @swimlane/ngx-charts --save

2. At the time of installing or when you serve your application is you get an error:

ERROR in The target entry-point "@swimlane/ngx-charts" has missing dependencies: - @angular/cdk/portal

You also need to install angular/cdk

npm install @angular/cdk --save

3. Import NgxChartsModule from ‘ngx-charts’ in AppModule

4. NgxChartModule also requires BrowserAnimationModule. Import is inAppModule.

app.module.ts

import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
import { NgxChartsModule }from '@swimlane/ngx-charts';
import { BrowserAnimationsModule } from '@angular/platform-browser/animations';
@NgModule({
  declarations: [
    AppComponent
  ],
  imports: [
    BrowserModule,
    BrowserAnimationsModule,
    NgxChartsModule
  ],
  providers: [],
  bootstrap: [AppComponent]
})
export class AppModule { }

Amazing! Now we can start using ngx-chart component and build the graph we want.

In the AppComponent we will provide data that the chart will represent. It’s a sample data for vehicles on the road survey.
