Dashboard is a set
of interconnected charts, created in situations when different information about a complex subject
or a situation is shown. Dashboard can contain as many charts
(of the same or different types) as necessary. This dashboard describes the ACME Corporation Sales
details in a period of fourteen years.
The data is being shown using three types of charts: Column Chart,
Column Chart and Pie chart. The first Column chart describes annual income of
the ACME Corp. This chart is interactive: clicking years columns changes the data in the Stacked Column
chart and in the Pie chart. When the year is selected, it is marked with a “star” marker of gold color,
making obvious what data we are looking at. The second chart tells us what are monthly sales and income in
form of a Stacked Column chart. The data shown on this chart depends on the selected column in the first
chart: each column of the monthly profit chart is divided into two stacked parts, light blue representing
the revenue and dark blue - gross profit. Pie chart shows product position volume breakdown, each position
has its own color, making it easier to understand the information.
