A Column Chart is a great instrument to show the difference in some discrete value in dependency of another value or discrete variable. This Chart type fits almost all situations of charts usage, so it is quite popular. 3D is only a visual setting that has nothing to do with the chart information.
This Chart describes the sales of three cosmetic products in four states: Florida, Texas, Arizona and Nevada. The X-axis holds those products names as categories, while the Y-axis shows the money (revenue) got from those sales. The series stand for the states. The legend on the chart is enabled, so any of the series can be turned down or enabled again. The labels are on, so each point (column) has its own label with the value, which is placed on the column's top. The tooltips display the product name as the title, and the series name (the state) with the value are shown in the tooltip body. The values spread along the Y-axis are ranged from $2,000 to $10,000 and each tick equals $2,000.
