Curtain Graphs: Using a Floating Baseline for Comparison in a Two-dimensional Graphical Space

Kassandra Raymond, Andrew Hamilton-Wright

Abstract

We present a novel visualization tool designed to provide support for the analysis of data sets focused around deviation from a baseline and including data from multiple series. The incorporation of a floating baseline makes the curtain graph distinct from waterfall plots and bar charts. Each data series therefore has a visual anchor that assists in interpretability, gives focus, and provides a means for easily broadening analysis across all presented series. The use of this tool in real-world examples based on relative and absolute comparisons is discussed.
