Graph visualization

The Graph visualization provides several types of graphs, each configured through the Graph controls.

Line Graph example

Select the Graph option from the visualization dropdown in the upper right.

Graph behavior

The Graph visualization color codes each table (or series) in the queried data set. When multiple series are present, it automatically assigns colors based on the selected Line Colors option.

When using a line graph, all points within a single table are connected. When multiple series are present, it automatically assigns colors based on the selected Line Colors option.

Graph controls

To view Graph controls, click the settings icon ( ) next to the visualization dropdown in the upper right.

Data
  • X Column: Select a column to display on the x-axis.
  • Y Column: Select a column to display on the y-axis.
Options
  • Interpolation: Select from the following options:
    • Line: Display a time series in a line graph
    • Smooth: Display a time series in a line graph with smooth point interpolation.
    • Step: Display a time series in a staircase graph.
  • Line Colors: Select a color scheme to use for your graph.
  • Shade Area Below Lines: Shade in the area below the graph lines.
Y Axis
  • Y Axis Label: Label for the y-axis.
  • Y Tick Prefix: Prefix to be added to y-value.
  • Y Tick Suffix: Suffix to be added to y-value.
  • Y Axis Domain: The y-axis value range.
    • Auto: Automatically determine the value range based on values in the data set.
    • Custom: Manually specify the value range of the y-axis.
      • Min: Minimum y-axis value.
      • Max: Maximum y-axis value.
