Few tools are as reliable from childhood to adulthood as charts. They are so simple that we first learn how to read and use them at a young age. But they are so reliable that we keep using them on a professional level our entire lives.
The right tool for powerful charts
Go beyond the columns
On top of that advanced chart, the software includes shapes beyond just the traditional columns, and perhaps the most interesting design is the heatmap chart. A Heatmap is a grid that portrays information on every single block. This already allows us to show more data than any column chart, but the geniality does not stop there. Heatmaps are colour-coded, which means that just a general look allows you to discern information, way before you read any number. It’s the same ingenuity that makes column charts so reliable, but with a much wider range of information.
