Olympic Medal Table - Another Redmond Profile chart

When I originally posted the Redmond Aged Debt Profile ChartDmitry Gudkov pointed out that it was much better than a stacked bar chart.  Of course, he is correct, it is.  So when I saw something similar to this yesterday (my data from http://www.london2012.com/medals/medal-count/):




I knew that I had to knock up a quick profile chart to replace it.  It didn't take long (it doesn't):


Visual, interactive, easy to use and interpret.  The other thing I like about this approach using QlikView's Straight Table is that it is easy to add the numbers in if necessary - although I feel that the numbers detract from the visual experience here.


What else can you do with it?

  2. Hi,

    I tried to create the same chart, all though I get black lines around the bars. How do you remove them?
