What they say about Datylon

"The best thing about Datylon is the incredible level of customization that is possible for every chart. [...] It's easy to change colors, font sizing, data-point positioning, labels, etc."

- Anneka, Senior Graphic Designer

"The other products were either too data analysis centric or didn't have enough styling options.
I use Datylon as a designer, not as an analyst, so I really care about ease of creation, ease of editing and the overall look."

- Emily, Creative Director

"I feel like we (designers) finally have an easy-to-use tool that doesn't lack
the customizability and design aesthetic that other graph maker tools tend to have".

- Josh, Layout Designer

What is a line graph?

A line graph visualizes an evolution of data over time. The data points represent two variables and are connected by a line to show the changing trend of the data. The x-axis or independent axis shows a continuous variable (usually time) and the y-axis or dependent axis contains a numerical value for a metric of interest. The line graph is very helpful in showing overall trends or progress. If the data requires more precise focus or exploration, it’s better to use another chart type.

Line graphs are among the oldest types of charts and are still one of the most popular. They are versatile, simple, and easy to understand. They can show a lot of information at once, but be careful with overloading the viewer. To avoid creating a spaghetti chart, don’t show too many lines at once or make sure you highlight the most important ones. 

A line graph can be also very easily applied onto or merged with other charts like the bar chart or the area chart.
