I am trying to classify different chart types by the shape of their data, and I am looking for a helpful resource. For example, on a line chart, I am looking for a description like:
A Line chart consists of three dimensions, of the following types: Nominal, Ordinal, and Interval
A Bar chart consists of two dimensions, of the following types....
Ideally, the dimensions would be classified using a system like Levels of Measurement
Does anyone know if such a resource exists?
