Python Area Charts are similar on Line Charts with the region between line & the axis base filled with color. Area Charts are generally used to show trend, cumulative sum using numbers or percentages over a period of time. CanvasJS lets you add different variants of Area Charts to your Django app like Area, Multi Series Area, Spline Area, Step Area, Stacked Area & Stacked Area 100% Charts.
To make visualization better, markers are shown for every datapoint only when there are less number of datapoints. Markers get hidden when the data set is large. Library provides option to show markers at specific datapoint, letting you highlight particular datapoint out of a large dataset.
Area Charts are useful when you are interested in cumulative totals over a period of time.
Spline Area Chart is similar to area chart except that the envelope of area is a smooth curve.
Step Area charts are drawn by connecting the data points using vertical and horizontal lines and shading the enclosed area.
Stacked Area is formed by stacking multiple data-series of area type one on top of the other.
Most commonly used features in Python Area Chart includes markers, indexlabels, changing color & opacity of the filled region, etc.
