Step Line Without Risers

Step line chart is a great alternative to a regular line chart when you have discreet data items. A regular line connecting two data points would mislead the viewer suggesting that there was some continuous movement from point A to point B when in reality there was a jump with no intermediary values. Additionally, amCharts lets you display step line chart with no vertical lines making it a great alternative to a column chart when there’s a lot of data.

Key implementation details

We use StepLineSeries to display a step line chart in amCharts XY Chart. Removing vertical risers is as easy as setting noRisers = true on the series.
