A time-series area chart is a type of data visualization that represents the changes in values over time. It is similar to a line chart, but with the area between the line and the time axis filled with color or shading. The area between the line and the time axis is often filled to emphasize the cumulative or total values of the data series.
Time-series area charts are commonly used to show the overall trend and the relative changes in values over time. They are especially useful for visualizing cumulative data, such as stock market performance, population growth, or financial indicators. The filled area between the line and the time axis provides a visual representation of the total or accumulated values, enabling viewers to understand the magnitude and proportion of the data series at different time points.
