"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
Making an account on Datylon is free and it only takes a few seconds. You can use your email address or Google account to join our platform and start making your own line graph.
Although you can start with editing a pre-made line graph design on the Inspiration page, you can also create a line graph from scratch with our line graph maker. Just select 'Create design' and stay in the "Charts" category.
Default charts serve as a starting point to help you design your line graph. Click on the line graph card to see a set of default variations and select the one you want by clicking on it.
There are a few ways to add your data to the line graph maker. You can just type or copy-paste your data into an empty or dummy data sheet. You can also add a locally saved file. You can find more detailed information on how to manage data in the Datylon line graph maker in our Help Center article.
Data binding is the mandatory step to connect the data as columns or rows to categories, serie, or data marks (e.g. line graph axis). Make sure to check out our Help Center article to learn more about binding in our line graph maker.
Every design, publication, and inspiration chart can be exported to SVG, PNG or PDF file.
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.
