Stream Graph

Microsoft Corporation

A stacked area chart with smooth interpolation. Often used to display values over time

A stream graph, is a type of stacked area graph which is displaced around a central axis, resulting in a flowing, organic shape.

Stream graphs display the changes in data over time of different categories through the use of flowing, organic shapes that somewhat resemble a river-like stream. This makes Stream Graphs aesthetically pleasing and more engaging to look at.

In a Stream graph, the size of each individual stream shape is proportional to the values in each category. The axis that a Stream Graph flows parallel to, is used for the time scale.

Stream graphs are ideal for displaying high-volume datasets, in-order to discover trends and patterns over time across a wide range of categories.
