Stacked Area

Short Description

The Stacked Area series displays data as areas on a diagram, so that the value of each data point is aggregated with the underlying data points’ values. This representation is useful when it’s necessary to compare both the point values and their aggregate for the same point arguments.

An example of the Stacked Area chart is shown in the image below.
