This figure represents data points in a chart with two value axes (here “Net sales” and “Margin”). The colors of the data points show the respective product lines.
Different variants arise here the segmentation of the XY plane.
7a: The area above a net profit threshold is highlighted in the chart
7b: The area above a margin threshold is highlighted in the chart
7c and 7d: The chart is subdivided by hyperbolic lines of equal “gross profit”. This type of chart can best be used if the two measures shown can be multiplied along a third dimension (here: the gross profit).
The number of data points can vary from a few to a few hundred or even a thousand.
Important: Legends inside or outside the chart to explain different colors or shapes; Selective labeling of data points; The labels are close to the data points; Consistent title and footnote concept.
