1 dimension + 1 metric
The leaderboard displays a metric over a dimension in a way that allows you to easily categorize each dimension value’s “performance” in terms of the metric value.
A simple example
Try it with your own data on the Visualization Playground
Let's analyze a bit
In this example, we can see the amount of revenue distributed over different dimension values (Points of sales). The dimension values are displayed in descending order, from the highest metric value to the lowest which allows us to “stack them” against each other. Travelling down the visualization, we can see that Shanghai is the point of sale selling more, followed by Berlin, then New York, etc.
The general statistics displayed allow us to determine the significance of each dimension value by comparing it to the Total and Average revenue per point of sale.
