Creating an area chart
An area chart is very similar to a line chart (time series graph) with the area between the axis and the line shaded. A stacked area chart segregates the area, based on related categories. Area charts may allow trends to be more easily spotted because the eye focuses on a bigger area rather than comparing lines.
In this recipe, we will create an area chart that will show the results of restaurant re-inspections in New York City from June 2012 to June 2016.
