Composition of a Chart

Depending on the set of data for interpretation, a chart has many different parts but generally has the following:

  • Title – A chart, which is often interlaced with the term graph, has a title that appears on top of the visual to describe the data being referred to. Titles are often specific and particular to the data presented.
  • Axes – Positioning of a chart rely on the axes namely the vertical (X) and horizontal (Y) axis. These would be graduated by a scale depending on the dimension being represented. Usually, a category is represented by an axis and any unit of measure for that category is also included and indicated in an enclosed parenthesis.
  • Grid Lines – A graph, as mentioned earlier is graduated by dimensions. Grid lines work by aligning the data corresponding to the dimensions it represents. Grid lines are often highlighted to indicate extremes or lows in a data set or indicate the median for the data.
  • Labels – Are points corresponding to data associated with the position in the chart. They are named according to the data they represent. Some labels are placed in connection to a point in the data where the presenter wants to highlight or show as an example.
  • Legend – In the case where multiple variables are being shown in a chart, a legend or key is placed below the chart to identify the variables indicated on the chart or graph. Legends are useful in interpreting some labels to graphs that are abbreviated or simplified.

Making a Graph in Excel

Nowadays, many people resort to Excel in the making of graphs or charts. Here are a few simple steps in making a simple line graph in Excel:

  • The first thing needed is to input the data available. For this example, we will just deal with two sets of data type being your dependent and independent variable.
  • Next, click or select all the data you have typed in.
  • Select a chart type from the menu by clicking on Insert > Scatter, then select Smooth Line Scatter Plot.
  • The graph should then automatically be displayed in context to the data that was selected before.
  • From the menu bar, choose Design > Chart Layout > which would display the title, vertical and horizontal labels. Label accordingly

And that’s it. Simple. You can add or customize the graph further with options from the Home menu. Changing options like the font, colors, and other parts of your graph. This graph then can be clicked on and copied to your actual presentation or report file.

Chart examples in Excel and chore chart examples shown in the page provide further explanation on how charts are made and translated data shown.
