Ticks are scale indicator which is used to specify the values on quantitative scale.
A quantitative scale label specifies the numeric value according to the major ticks in the range of the scale.
The Caption for a bullet graph is used to specify a unique label describing the value represented in the bullet graph.
A qualitative range is a visual element which ends at a specified RangeEnd at the start of the previous range’s RangeEnd. The qualitative ranges are arranged according to each RangeEnd value.
Featured measure is used to display the primary data, or the current value of the data that you are measuring. It should usually be encoded as a bar, like the bar on a bar graph, and be prominent.
Comparative measure should be less visually dominant than the featured measure. It should always be encoded as a short line that runs perpendicular to the orientation of the graph. A good example would be a target for YTD revenue. Whenever the featured measure intersects a comparative measure, the comparative measure should appear behind the featured measure.
