Motion charts

Motion charts add a time dimension to scatter plots. Available in Excel using the XLSTAT statistical software.

What are motion charts?

Usually, when one wants to visualize the evolution of a variable over time, the value of the variable is plotted on the Y axis as a function of time on the X axis. With this type of representation, you are limited to the evolution of only one variable at a time. If more than one variable on different observations are to be explored, several charts are needed. The XLSTAT Motion Chart solves this issue by allowing you to explore the evolution of several variables (up to 3) measured on different observations over time on a single dynamic chart.
