Horizon chart components

Learn how horizon chart components emphasize meaning.

Visual elements


Mod viz horizon chart.png
A horizon chart shows multiple lanes stacked on top of one another. Every horizontal lane in the horizon chart represents one time series.


Custom viz horizon bands.png
Every lane in a horizon chart shows layered bands or areas. A band is like a horizontal slice of an area chart. Layering bands collapses taller areas into a smaller space. Higher value bands appear in front of lower value bands.


Bands use color to show how their values relate to a baseline. Values above a baseline appear in shades of one color. Values below a baseline appear in shades of a contrasting color. Deeper shades represent higher values.

Interactive elements
