Hello Everyone,

Here I would like to show how to create a Reference line which can be used to identify the key values from your data during the analysis.

Lets consider an example, wherein the end user would like to view the sales numbers, which are higher than some reference value.

Say the end user wants to see the months where the target(reference) is more.

Lumira offers a functionality known as Reference Lines.

Consider the following sample data,in which the end user would like to view this data in visualized chart, with some reference value.

Using the Column chart, we can depict the above data as,

In the above simple example, we can see which are the months are having values more than say 23(which is set as target). In this case, Apr and Jun have values more than 23.

When we have a complex data with lot of data points, its difficult to analyse and we can use reference lines in such cases.

In the following visualizations, if the end user wants to highlight the reference line on the chart below, he can create a Reference line.

Lets create a Reference line on value 4M(4 Million)

This Reference would be highlighted in the chart as below

This reference can also be created as Dynamic value and the current option available is “Average”. In this case, the reference value would be an average of all the values.

Thus we can create Reference Lines in Lumira and analyse the data in a better way.
