Bullet Graph
Lab Demo

The Bullet Graph is a concept originally designed and developed by Stephen Few by the traditional thermometer charts and progress bars found in many dashboards. The Bullet Graph is designed to replace those dashboard gauges and charts by representing data as a set of measures compared to each other in a simple yet powerful way.
