Area Range


An area range chart, or area range graph, is often used to display a trend of a continuous data set over a period of time.
The demo below displays the city of Bergen, Norway┬┤s wind forecast (expected and possible wind), with an area range to visualize the maximum and minimum expected wind, and a line for the possible wind.
