Small Multiple Line Chart

Daniel Marsh-Patrick

3.8 (16)

Provides the ability to plot a line chart with small multiples.

A small multiple (also known as a trellis, lattice, panel or grid) is a series of charts using the same scale and axes, allowing them to be easily compared. This visual allows you to take a measure you might normally plot in a line chart, and duplicate this for the values of another category.

Refer to the example .pbix file, or the documentation for more details.
