The chart you select to represent your data will be influenced by many factors. Kirk (2016) has put each chart into the five main families below:
• Categorical: Comparing categories and distributions of quantities values
• Hierarchical: Charting part-to-whole relationships and hierarchies
• Relational: Graphing relationships to explore correlations and connections
• Temporal: Showing trends and activities over time
• Spatial: Mapping spatial patterns through overlays and distortions
Select two chart types from the text and discuss what these charts are used for and why you selected the. (The author has included a lot of different chart types in the course book). Each chart type is to be described in at least 150 words.
