Where to use interactive bar charts

Interactive bar charts have a place in online presentations, slides, social media posts, reports, and ebooks. Across multiple industries, whenever you have to compare categories of information to show trends and changes over time, a bar chart is an effective way to tell that story. 

Using interactive bar charts elevates the experience by allowing viewers to move their mouse over key data points and learn more about those specific findings. This chart shows the different sources that generate electricity and how, over time, those sources change. By allowing the user to drag their mouse over data points, and adding select animations, what would normally be a run-of-the-mill chart is elevated and more engaging to viewers.
