Gauge Layer

Gauge Layer

A Gauge layer is similar to a pie chart, but with a needle or dial to indicate where your data point(s) falls over a particular range. A useful visualization tool, gauge charts can be used in the Vizlib KPI alongside line and bar charts. They are highly customizable, and you can specify how you want your radial scale, needle indicator(s), pivot point, and gauge ring to appear.

Gauge Range

You can set the min and max possible values. 
The clockwise switch can be used to locate the numbers on the gauge the way as needed. 

Gauge Limits

You can set a certain value to add a limit on your gauge layer.  Limit bar can be any color you want.

Needle Settings

The Gauge layer can have one or multiple needles indicating numbers or metrics on the radial area.

Reference Types

You have three different ways to style your needle:

Gauge ticks

You can also style your ticks by choosing special color, font and size.
