Line chart





This is the line chart section of the gallery. If you want to know more about this kind of chart, visit data-to-viz.com. If you're looking for a simple way to implement it in d3.js, pick an example below.

Step by step

Line chart are built thanks to the d3.line() helper function. I strongly advise to have a look to the basics of this function before trying to build your first chart. First example here is the most basic line plot you can do. Next one shows how to display several groups, and how to use small multiple to avoid the spaghetti chart.



Interactivity: switch data

Three examples showing how to switch from one data sery to another with smooth transition. Three situations are described. 1/ series are stored in different input file. 2/ series are stored in the same dataset, each in a different columns (wide format). 3/ same dataset, same column: long or tidy format.



Interactivity: other

Interactivity can also be useful to zoom on a part of the chart or highlight a specific sery of the chart
