Bullet Graphs

The BulletGraph is a type of linear gauge designed specifically for use in dashboards. It displays a single key measure along with a comparative measure and qualitative ranges to instantly signal whether the measure is good, bad, or in some other state.

Bullet Graphs were created and popularized by dashboard design expert Stephen Few.
