Power BI: Exploring Default Visuals in Power BI, A Comprehensive Guide
DescriptionThe video is about exploring the default visuals in Power BI, which is a business intelligence tool used for data visualization and analysis. The video explains how to import data into Power BI and create various types of charts, including stacked charts, clustered charts, line charts, area charts, line and column charts, ribbon charts, and waterfall charts.
For each chart type, the video explains how to add it to the dashboard and how to add the appropriate fields to the X and Y axes and the legend area. It also explains how to change a chart type by creating a copy of an existing chart and changing its visual type.
The stacked chart displays data as bars or columns with each bar or column divided into segments that represent relative proportions of different categories or sub-categories. Power BI provides four types of stacked charts: stacked bar chart, stacked column chart, 100% stacked bar chart, and 100% stacked column chart.
Clustered charts are a type of bar or column chart that display multiple sets of data compared to each other. There are two types of clustered charts in Power BI: clustered bar chart and clustered column chart.
A line chart displays trends or changes over time or across categories. A line chart can also display multiple data sets for comparison.
An area chart displays data trends over time or across categories by filling the area below a line connecting the data points. Power BI provides two types of area charts: area chart and stacked area chart.
Line and column charts combine lines and columns in a single chart and Power BI provides two types: line and stacked column chart, and line and clustered column chart.
A ribbon chart is a type of stacked area chart that represents the relative proportions of multiple series and emphasizes the total size of each category across all series. Power BI provides one type of ribbon chart.
A waterfall chart shows how an initial value is affected by a series of intermediate positive or negative values, resulting in a final value, with each step represented as a floating column. Power BI provides one type of waterfall chart.
The video provides a detailed explanation of each chart type and how to create it in Power BI.
