Purpose & Application¶
A leaderboard shows raking among categories. It consists of a series of bars representing a quantitative metric for comparable entities. This viz allows to quickly benchmark all entities.
📝 For example, I want to know which of my regions is performing best?
The leaderboard is good when there are more than 10 categories to compare.
It can also help compare up to 3 KPIs for each of these categories.
What makes this chart a killer story?
On the fly ranking! It’s good to see best/worst performer for a given period, but what about identifying the best/worst evolution from last period? With our smooth UX, you’ll see right away the ranks changes.
France is my top selling country in 2019, but is only improving by 0.001% versus last year, while Germany is promessing: +36.6% versus last year.
Smooth drill functionality to get a deeper level of analysis 🔎.
Average column can be used to make a vertical line appear, so that you can compare your bars to the overall average.
My best shop has sold 300K€ of cheese this year, how is it going comparing to the average of all my different shops?
Sparklines are the variation end-game boss ⚔️. It allows you to show your user a X years / months / whatever evolution as a sparkline on the right side of each bar.
I want to have a global vision of the performance of Bordeaux’s 🍷 shop, right from its opening.
Groups add some colors to your chart 🎨 which can be a great way to help decision makers to focus on what’s important.
I have several shops by region, and I want to be able to have both an overview and a drill down option.
Additionnal values are available for both single bars or groups, and allows you conceptor to display complementary informations within the legend of the leaderboard.
I’ve sold 200K€ of candies 🍭 in 2019, but what is the associated margin? I can add it as an additionnal that will be displayed when the user will click on a bar.
