The official website of Adobe says that “Adobe® Flash® Player is a cross-platform browser-based application runtime that delivers uncompromised viewing of expressive applications, content, and videos across screens and browsers.” Note the words “…expressive applications, content, and videos…” This means that Flash is not intended only for watching videos as many people believe it to be.
Pictorial representation of mathematical data is one of the best ways to express the statistical results, especially when your audience is not mathematically advanced. This way your results will be understandable by a larger audience. Why else, do you think software’s like Google Analytics employ pie charts, geometrical curves, graphs, etc. to display their results?
Of course there are plenty of ways in which you can pictorially represent your mathematical data. There are pie charts, bar graphs, line charts, etc. And in fact one can design each one of them with slight variations to give them different looks. For e.g. a pie chart can be drawn simply on a piece of paper in two dimensions or you can give it a three dimensional touch as shown in the eight subheading below. Different types of graphs are suited for different needs and requirements.
Below I have collected 10 different types of graphs which run on Adobe’s Flash Player.
