An area chart (also called area graph) displays graphically quantitive data which is based on the line chart. The area between axis and line are commonly emphasized with colors, textures and hatchings. Area charts emphasize the magnitude of change over time and can draw attention to the total value across a trend. Area charts are typically used to represent cumulated totals over time and are the conventional way to display stacked lines.
Generally one compares with an area chart two or more quantities. If you compare too many quantities with an area chart, data series with smaller values that are plotted in the back of an area chart may be completely or partially hidden behind data series with larger values that are plotted in front of them. However, in Edraw software, you can use transparency to show the entire outline of smaller data series through any larger data series in front.
