Vizlib KPI Designer Properties - Layers - Gauge Chart

A Gauge Chart layer is similar to a pie chart, but with a needle or dial to indicate where your data point(s) fall over a particular range. A useful visualization tool, gauge charts can be used alongside line and bar charts. This article contains details of the settings specific to the gauge chart layer. You can find more information on the shared settings for layers here   


The example here shows a gauge with a range of 0 - 100 and needles to indicate the data points.
