Area Chart

An area chart or area graph is used to display quantitative data in a graphical manner.
Common uses are the comparison of two or more quantities.
They can be used to represent cumulated totals using numbers or percentages over time.

Use the area chart to show trends over time among related attributes.
When multiple attributes are included, the first attribute is plotted as a line with color fill followed by the second attribute, and so on.
Technically this chart type is based on Line Chart and represents filled area between zeroline and the line that connects data points.

The area can be filled with a color, texture (image) or hatchFill.
The same as for Line Chart, timeline scale is the most common case for the X-axis of the Area Chart, but sometimes ordinal scale can be also used.
