About meter charts
A meter chart displays a value as a needle pointer on a semicircle, called a dial. As Figure 8-20 shows, a meter chart resembles a speedometer, with tick marks and numbers showing a range of values. In this example, the meter chart displays two pointers that represent two values: projected sales total and actual sales total. Use a meter chart to display a small set of values.
