A chart can represent tabular numeric data, functions or some kinds of qualitative structure and provides different info The term "chart" as a graphical representation of data has multiple meanings: ⁕A data chart is a type of diagram or graph, that organizes and represents a set of numerical or qualitative data. ⁕Maps that are adorned with extra information for some specific purpose are often known as charts, such as a nautical chart or aeronautical chart. ⁕Other domain specific constructs are sometimes called charts, such as the chord chart in music notation or a record chart for album popularity. Charts are often used to ease understanding of large quantities of data and the relationships between parts of the data. Charts can usually be read more quickly than the raw data that they are produced from. They are used in a wide variety of fields, and can be created by hand or by computer using a charting application. Certain types of charts are more useful for presenting a given data set than others. For example, data that presents percentages in different groups are often displayed in a pie chart, but may be more easily understood when presented in a horizontal bar chart. On the other hand, data that represents numbers that change over a period of time might be best shown as a line chart.
