A time-series line chart is a type of data visualization that displays the changes in values over time using a line that connects the data points. It is one of the most common and straightforward ways to represent time-dependent data.
Time-series line charts are widely used to visualize and analyze trends and patterns in time-dependent data. They are effective in showing the overall direction of the data series, identifying upward or downward trends, and understanding the relationship between variables over time. Line charts are commonly employed in various fields, such as finance, economics, weather analysis, and performance tracking, to study and communicate time-dependent data effectively.
