Survo Graphics Gallery

The gallery presents a large collection of Survo graphs with their work schemes. Hence, in addition to looking at the graphs, it is possible to see how they are actually created in Survo. The gallery also includes a few graphs that may look a bit complicated. However, there is no need to be afraid of them, as the following quote explains:

Survo has a picturial language of its own. This language is based on certain basic types of graphs. The picturial language permits free combinations and overlays of basic graph types. Each graphical component can be enhanced and decorated by colors and other graphical and textual attributes in many ways. This approach enables making of very complicated pictures. Many people - seeing the final result only - are afraid that this must be a difficult task. Let's however pretend that there are no complicated things. If something looks complicated, it is merely combination of simple things. Of course, some skills are needed in order to reverse the process and see in each case what are those simple components forming the final picture. In order to learn such skills it is helpful to study ready-made pictures and compare them to the corresponding Survo plotting schemes (PLOT operations with various specifications). It is also worthwhile to make various experiments by modifying existing plotting schemes - even by trial and error.

Index and catalog

The graphs in the gallery may be browsed in a free order. Following the links of the graph pages eventually takes the whole tour through the gallery. The index below is sorted according to the graph type. You may also take a look at the gallery by browsing the catalog, which includes the thumbnails of all graphs. They are also links to the corresponding pages, where you can find how the graphs are made.

Bar and pie charts

Histograms and box plots

Scatter diagrams

Time series diagrams

Diagrams related to statistical methods

Statistical special diagrams

Curves and families of curves

Other graphs


The above selection of graphs is not in any case a perfect representation of the graphical possibilities in Survo. The basic graph types may be mixed freely, each detail be adjusted sharply, and the graphs may be created as combinations of arbitrary many pictures. It means that the imagination of the user is the only thing that might set any limits for the kind of graphs that can be plotted in Survo.
