AnyChart 7.14.0 Released: New Chart Types, Technical Indicators, Google Spreadsheets Data Loader, and more
Below is an overview of highlights of what was added with the latest major update, taken from the original news published on the AnyChart Blog.
Quadrantize discrete data to choose between multiple alternatives. The Quadrant Chart type helps categorize and prioritize information. Check out Quadrant Chart samples: Business Intelligence (BI) Software, Eisenhower Matrix, SWOT Analysis, Scattered Data.
Reveal similarities and nesting relationships between different sets by visualizing data on a Venn Diagram. This chart type graphically represents data as overlapping circles and is helpful in contrasting and categorizing diverse groups of things — see our charting examples.
Mekko Chart (Marimekko Chart) and Mosaic Chart
Enable multidimensional overview of data by using the Mekko Chart and Mosaic Chart types. Featuring 2 categorical axes, both X and Y, they work well for exploring relationships between different variables, e.g. visualizing product sales, skills across jobs, etc.
Bar Mekko Chart
Focus on only one segment of data while staying on a Mekko plot by letting in the Bar Mekko Chart type. The new chart type is now available in the AnyChart JS charting library out of the box and is nicely suitable for adding trendlines and displaying both positive and negative values.
Display the cumulative effect of positive and negative values introduced sequentially. The new Waterfall Chart type is a great instrument to explore processes, e.g. research, production, sales, and so on. NB: AnyChart can get data both as absolute values and as deltas.
Stacked Stock Chart
Show the cumulative, total value of all series on a Stock Chart by applying data to the Stacked Stock Chart type. Basically, stacking is not used in financial charting but can be helpful for other purposes: sales, web analytics, or any other timeline data over a long time.
Tag Cloud (World Cloud)
Represent text data graphically with the help of Tag Clouds (also Word Clouds), now available in AnyChart with color scale for categorization and many word arrangement and interactivity settings. A Tag Cloud helps reveal the most prominent keywords or tags in a text body.

Google Spreadsheets Data Loader
