Stacked Spline Area

Short Description

The Stacked Spline Area Chart is similar to Stacked Area Chart, but plots a fitted curve through each data point in a series.

A Stacked Spline Area chart is shown in the image below.



If two stacked areas contain data points for different arguments, points for missing arguments are not treated as zero-value points.

A Stacked Spline Area chart can display series containing data points with positive or negative values. However, a series with positive values is stacked only with other series containing positive values; and a series with negative values is stacked with other series containing negative values.
