A sparkline is a very small line chart that is typically drawn without axes or coordinates. It presents the general shape of the variation (typically over time) in some measurement in a simple and highly condensed way. Sparklines are small enough to be embedded in text or several sparklines may be grouped together as elements of a small multiple. (Please see example in Excel Worksheet).
