Overview

Bullet Graph is a variation of the bar graph that is developed as a replacement for the dashboard gauges and meters. The Bullet Graph features a single, primary measure (for example, current year-to-date revenue), and compares that measure to one or more other measures to enrich its meaning (for example, compared to a target). It displays the measures in the context of the qualitative range of performance, such as poor, satisfactory, and good.

Use Cases:

  • It is used in the dashboard environment where the screen real-estate really counts.
  • Bullet Graph shows a ton of data in a very compact space.
  • It is handy to visualize data.
  • It is used in the revenue analysis and expense analysis.
