4 Overview Overview OpenOffice.org Calc lets you present data graphically in a chart, so that you can visually compare data series and view trends in the data.

5 Inserting charts OpenOffice.org Calc offers a variety of different ways to chart or graph your Calc data. Any time a chart is created, the chart AutoPilot is invoked. Open the spreadsheet and highlight (select) the data to be included in the chart. There are two ways to proceed after you have selected your data. The first method (see Figure 1) is Insert > Chart: Figure 1. Selecting Insert Chart The second method (see Figure 2) is to long-click (that is, hold down the left mouse button for 1 second) on Insert Object to display the floating toolbar, then click on the Insert Chart button: Creating Charts and Graphs 1

6 Figure 2. Using the Insert Chart button Using the Chart AutoPilot Once Insert Chart is selected, the chart AutoPilot menu appears. (See Figure 3.) The first dialog is used to define the data range, the labels, and the target sheet for the chart. Figure 3. Create a Chart AutoPilot Data Range The data range selected should contain both the labels and the data. (See Figure 4.) If the data range is selected when the AutoPilot is started, it will automatically be inserted in the Range input field. If the AutoPilot is started without a selected data range, a range can be selected by clicking on the range selection icon next to the Range input field. Creating Charts and Graphs 2

7 Figure 4. Highlighted Data Range First Row/Column as Label First Row as Label: Uses the entries in the top row of the selection as labels for the data range. This setting is useful if there are several columns of data that need to be displayed in the same chart. (See Figure 5.) 1 1st Row as Label Time (s) Speed (m/s) Row 2 Row 3 Row 4 Row 5 Row 6 Figure 5. Example using first row as label Creating Charts and Graphs 3

8 First Column as Label: Uses the entries in the leftmost column of the selection as labels for the data range. (See Figure 6.) 1 1st Column as Label Column B Time (s) Figure 6. Example using first column as label First Column & First Row as Label: Both checkboxes can be selected as well. This provides a combination of both options. This sets the first row as the labels and the first column as the x-axis values. (See Figure 7.) 1 1st Column & 1st Row as Label Speed (m/s) Figure 7. Example using first column and first row as labels Chart Results Output This dropdown box specifies which sheet the chart will output to. By default the current sheet is selected, but any sheet, or a new sheet, can also be selected. However, a chart can not be set to be its own sheet; it must be an object in a normal sheet. Once the correct options have been input, either click Create to create the chart, or click Next to proceed to the next dialog to choose the chart type. Creating Charts and Graphs 4

9 Choosing the chart type On the next page of the AutoPilot (see Figure 8), the chart type can be chosen and a preview of the chart output can be seen. Click Create from here, or click Next for more options. Figure 8. Choosing a chart type (format) OpenOffice.org Calc offers several different chart types. Most chart types come in both a 2- dimensional and a 3-dimensional style. Below is the list of available styles with examples. Lines (2D & 3D) Provides a standard line graph that is useful for displaying changing data over a period of time. 6 Running Distances Running Distances 55 Distance (M) Time (s) Jenny's Distance Marc's Distance Sarah's Distance Y axis title X axis title Sarah's Distance Marc's Distance Jenny's Distance Z axis title Jenny's Distance Marc's Distance Sarah's Distance Figure 9. 2D Line Graph: Normal Figure 1. 3D Line Graph: Deep Creating Charts and Graphs 5

10 Areas (2D & 3D) Creates graphs that are similar to line graphs but with the area under the line shaded in. Distance Running Distances Time (s) Sarah's Distance Marc's Distance Jenny's Distance Distance Running Distances Marc's Distance Jenny's Distance Time (s) Jenny's Distance Marc's Distance Sarah's Distance Figure 11. 2D Area: Stacked Figure 12. 3D Area: Deep Columns (2D & 3D) Creates vertical columns to represent data. The columns can be normal, stacked, or by percent. In 3D mode the data can also be represented by cylinders and cones. 2 # of Calls # of Calls by Week # of Calls Sun Mon Tues Wed nes Thur s Day of the Week Fri Sat ur Week 1 Week 2 Week Sun Tues # of Calls Day of Week Thurs Fri Satur Week 1 Week 2 Week 3 Week 1 Week 2 Week 3 Figure 13. 2D Column: Normal Figure 14. 3D Columns: Cones, deep Creating Charts and Graphs 6

11 Bars (2D & 3D) Provides the same features as columns, but they are horizontal. # of Calls # of Calls by Week Sun Day of the Week Mon Tues Wed nes Thur s Fri Sat ur # of Calls Week 3 Week 2 Week 1 Day of Week Satur Fri Thurs Wednes Tues Mon Sun # of Calls 2 Week 1 Week 2 Week 3 Figure 15. 2D Bar: Stacked Figure 16. 3D Bars: Normal Pies (2D & 3D) Graphs that are useful for showing the parts of a whole. The pie chart can be separated or keep as a solid circle. Gases in the Atmosphere Gases in the Atmosphere Nitrogen Oxygen Carbon Dioxide Argon Water Vapor Other Gases Nitrogen Oxygen Carbon Dioxide Argon Water Vapor Other Gases Figure 17. 2D Pie: Offset 2 Figure 18. 3D Pie: Normal Creating Charts and Graphs 7

12 XY Chart This graph is similar to a scatter plot. It can be used to show several trials of experiments with two variables Acceleration of Different Masses with a Given Force Acceleration (m/s^2) Force (N) Acceleration o f1kg mass(m/s2) Acceleration of 2kg mass(m/s2) Acceleration of 35kg mass(m/s2) Figure 19. XY Chart: Lines with Symbols Net Provides a circular graph with a separate Y axis for each item on the X axis. Points within a data series are connected with a polygon. Main Title Sun 2 Mon Satur Week 1 Week 2 Week 3 Tues Fri Wednes Thurs Figure 2. Net Chart: Normal Creating Charts and Graphs 8

13 Stock Chart Shows change from one data series to the next for each X value. Value (USD) $7. $67.5 $65. $62.5 $6. $57.5 $55. $52.5 $5. $47.5 $45. $42.5 $4. $ Figure 21. Stock: Stock Chart 2 My Stocks Date WMT MSFT OOo The next page of the AutoPilot (see Figure 22) provides options for fine-tuning the chart selection. There are several variants that can be chosen for each graph type. In the example charts above, the variants come after the colon. Again, the chart can be created from this screen, or titles and labels can be added by clicking Next. Figure 22. Choosing a variant Creating Charts and Graphs 9

14 On the last page of the AutoPilot (see Figure 23), a title and labels for the axes can be added. Figure 23. Adding text Editing the chart Once the chart is created, further edits can be made. To edit a chart: 1) Select the chart (left-click). 2) Right-click and select Edit. Alternatively, the chart can be double-clicked. This will activate a new toolbar on the left side of the screen (see Figure 24) used for editing different aspects of the chart. Creating Charts and Graphs 1

15 Editing the chart Figure 24. Edit Chart toolbar Moving and resizing a chart Once the chart has been created, it can be moved or scaled. To move the chart: 1) Click on the chart to select it. 2) Click and hold down the left mouse button to drag the chart across the window. To resize the chart: 1) Click on the chart to select it. 2) Click on one of the green handle bars (see Figure 25) and move the mouse. Creating Charts and Graphs 11
