A time-series bar chart, also known as a timeline bar chart, is a type of data visualization that combines the elements of a bar chart with a time axis. It is used to display and compare the values of different categories or variables over a specific time period.
Time-series bar charts are useful for analyzing and comparing the values of different categories or variables over time. They can reveal trends, patterns, or changes in the data, allowing for easy identification of the highest or lowest values at different time points. This type of chart is commonly used in various domains, including finance, economics, sales, and marketing, to track and analyze time-dependent data.
