What is a graph?

A graph is a visual representation of data. Graphs are used to provide a better understanding of larger quantities of data in a condensed and easy-to-understand manner. Graphs make it easier to find hidden information and insights that are otherwise hard to find from a table with data. This process helps improve data communication. There are many different graph types and categories, and most of them can be created with our Graph Maker.
