Facility for embedding a Line graph within its corresponding Area in a Stacked Area
The current charting techniques doesn't provide a mechanism to overlay a data series within an area of a stacked style graphs.
Currently none of the chart libraries provides this capability whereas they have the capability to overlay the data over the entire chart instead of drawing it over the appropriate Stacked Area.
To overcome this problem, New capability would be needed to overlay the data series within the boundaries of its corresponding area region in a stacked graph so that it can depict the relationship more directly.
The proposed idea is to provide a methodology to achieve overlaying data points with in a specific region of the stacked style graphs.
The idea is to provide a standard new charting mechanism through which a user can specify that the sepcific graph need to be overlayed with-in specific stacked master graph.
This solution provides the advantage of depicting a direct relationship between two related attributes of a set of data in a single graphical view. Otherwise, the user has to manually correlate the graphs overlaid on the stacked master graph in his mind which could be tedious and error prone. This solution aids in direct comparison and display direct relationship between these information. This can be used for inferences and derivation of more meaningful information.
Enabling this new capability on any kind of stacked charts overlaid with other type of graphs will bring in a big advantage for the user where their requirement is to transfer their sets of data into organized and interactive chart where each set of has 2 related attributes.
So Chart with this new capability would be
Pleasant in appearance
Easy to understand, interpret and derive the data from the chart
Easy to Compare collection of interrelated data.
The aim is to provide a solution...
