    Hello there,
    Could you clarify the difference between [u]line graphs[/u] and [u]Cartesian graphs[/u]?

    The materials I have from the NBA conference in Eugene, OR last year indicate that line graphs DO use numeric indicators, while Cartesian graphs do NOT, but I can't figure out the difference between the two types of graphs.

    I have asked this question myself numerous times and wish there was a better explanation that I could give you. What we have come up with in our office as an indication is that Cartesian graphs use the four quadrants divided by the x- and y-asis. Often you have plotted points on such a graph, but it could also display a line graph. Hope this helps.

    P.S. Please also note the information included in an earlier post entitled "Labeling numbers on cartesian grid".
