Bar charts are good for when you want to show the difference between different categories. You can also use them to track changes over time. Bar charts work best if the changes over time are significant. With Piktochart’s graph maker, non-designers can create reports with pre-made reports, online.

The most common type of bar graph (or bar chart) is a vertical bar graph. This type of graph displays data using vertical bars, with the height of each bar representing the value of the data being displayed.
Horizontal bar graphs, on the other hand, display data using horizontal bars. A horizontal bar graph is often used when the category names are long or when the values being displayed are large, as the horizontal layout makes it easier to read the values.
Another type of bar graph is a stacked bar graph. This type of graph displays multiple classifications in bars on top of each other, each represented by a different color or pattern.
Grouped bar graphs, on the other hand, display multiple categories via bars side by side, making it easy to compare values between the classifications.

A double bar graph, also known as a double column graph, is a type of bar graph that compares two sets of data side by side. It consists of two sets of bars, each set representing a different category or data set, with each bar in the set corresponding to a specific value or data point. Easily create these types of graphs using Piktochart’s bar chart maker tool!

You can sign up to Piktochart for free and try out all the chart templates, fill your graphic with icons and customize your bars, and download your design as an image file or your preferred file format.
