Floating column

Use a floating column visualization to display the minimum and maximum value of your data.

The series of the chart does not connect to an axis but next to the axis, which views as floating.

Floating column visualizations use horizontal data markers to compare individual values. You can use floating column visualizations to compare discrete data or to show trends over time.

A floating column visualization can show changes over a specific time period. If the visualization has so many columns that the labels are impossible to read, filter the data to focus on a subset of the data or use a tree map.

Suppose that you have the following data from the next table.

Day Maximum temperature Minimum temperature
Monday 2 0
Tuesday 2 -2
Wednesday 8 3
Thursday 9 5
Friday 11 7
Saturday 6 3
Sunday 3 0

Use the y-start field to define where the measure must start.
