Box Plots

ChartTypes Boxplots.png

Box-plots (complementing stem-leaf plots and histograms) are some of the most useful and most used graphical methods in statistical data analysis. Every professional package should be able to draw box-plots.

Various Boxplot Derivations (although these are lesser priority):

3D Pie Chart with different heights for different pieces

Please Don't Do It
Pie charts with different heights have been deemed among the worst graphics representations. The extra-dimension does NOT bring any additional information and annihilates the main concept behind the pie chart.
   11. Features that appear meaningful should have meaning.
   Consider the three variations on a pie chart in Figure 2, all of which attempt
   to display the same data. The towering slices in the multi-height design (Figure 2A)
   are the chart's dominant features, but in many published examples have no meaning.
   The less exotic 3D pie chart (Figure 2B) has problems of its own.
