◆ Changing visualization settings

Keshif offers various simple and powerful visualization settings. Some settings are specific to a single chart while others apply to all relevant charts in a dashboard.

The visualization settings featured below do not change the computed data, but change its visualization. To change the analytical approach, see breakdown modes and aggregation measures.

Aggregated chart settings

Dashboard-level settings

When comparing data groups via compare selections, group visualizations can be shown as stacked or side-by-side, and the whole data can be hidden from charts for focused data presentations.

Common chart-level settings

In aggregated charts, the measurement axis is used to map the measured values for visual analysis. The axis type and axis extent are the two chart-specific configurations that control this setting in Keshif.

Categorical bar chart settings

Categorical bar charts allow adjusting the size and layout of the bars and categories. You can also modify the sorting order of the categories.

Interval chart settings (Histograms, line-charts)

Interval visualizations bin (aggregate) records in intervals and visualize the data in each bin using the bar height, or line position. You can adjust bin heights, ranges, zoom and measurement scales of interval charts.

Record chart settings

Record map settings

Record maps primarily use color to show an additional data variable, in addition to record positions.

If the record positions are based on point-locations, an additional point-size setting is provided.

Record scatter plot settings

Record scatter plots use point position, size and color settings to visualize data in up to four dimensions.

Record time-series chart settings

Record time-series charts plot each record as a line, which the line path based on the values of the record over time. The specific controls include adjusting the time-range focus, the value-axis, and the coloring of the record lines.
