Chart overview

Select a chart type to show one or more data dimensions in a results set. Learn how charts visualize data series.

Select a chart

You can select a chart depending on the number of data dimensions that you want to visualize. For example, use a pie chart to show how values combine in a single field. A bubble chart can show relationships between multiple fields in a data set.
