Summary

We created a very crowded horizontal chart with over 100 bars. The chart was unusable, so we took another look at the data and presented it as a stacked bar chart. We moved on to creating a more compact bar chart by removing ticks and the axis label. We added the category names to our point labels to make up for removing the tick labels. Also, we represented business logic by overlaying a line on our chart.

In the next chapter, we will bake up some charts by exploring pie charts and donut charts. We will also examine some of the reasons why people hate pie charts.
