Butterfly Chart / Tornado Chart



Use case example: Brand value comparison

The butterfly chart template above shows brand value of top 10 companies and compares them between two periods – 2017 and 2018. The chart also displays percent increase or decrease in brand value over the year 2017.

Brand values in US dollars are plotted on X-axis and categories (companies in this example) are plotted on Y-axis. The two periods/sub-categories/data series (2017 and 2018 in this example) are displayed side by side on either side of the categories for a quick comparison.


% Change = [ (Brand value in 2018 - Brand value in 2017) / Brand value in 2017] x 100
