This week’s goal is to create a bi-dimensional chart (alternative parallel chart) that reveals if your budget has recovered or not. Parallel Coordinates represent multi-dimensional data across a set of vertical axis- different measures have different scales -, for this week’s challenge you will have to figure out how to show 2 different measures on one axis on a single chart.
- Dashboard Size: 1000px by 700 px
- Create a polygon chart that shows Review, Budget, and Revenue per sub-category
- Use 3 tables as 1 source to plot the 3 different measures
- Each sub-category should intersect the axis at the appropriate value and all measures should be on one sheet
- The left vertical axis should show Avg Review per sub-category
- The right vertical axis should show Budget and Revenue per sub-category
- Fixed your axis
- Label the left vertical line with its measure name – Avg REVIEW
- Add Labels next to the right vertical line (at the top – REVENUE and at the bottom – BUDGET)
- Show dots and Labels (Sub-category, Avg Review) at the data points of Avg Review axis
- The color of the revenue line is based on profitability. If the Revenue is less than Budget then it is a Red.
- Create the chart to an expandable version – for one-click show the sub-categories side by side and for one-click merge them.
- Match tooltips and all formatting
- Chart color
- #666666 – Grey (opacity 30%)
- #888888 – Dark Grey
- #FF6B6B – Red
- Text color – #333333
- Chart color
