After sucking the blood and turning the young Lucy Weston into a vampire, Dracula turns his
attention to her friend Mina Seward, daughter of Dr. Seward who then calls in a specialist,
Dr. Van Helsing, to diagnose the sudden deterioration of Mina's health. Van Helsing,
realizing that Dracula is indeed a vampire, tries to prepare Mina's fiance, John Harker,
and Dr. Seward for what is to come and the measures that will have to be taken to prevent
Mina from becoming one of the undead.",

With this tutorial, you will learn how to use filters to refine a large result set down to an easily understandable chart, and use multi-series charts to gain further insight into the data.

In this tutorial, you'll create two charts: a sorted column chart and a scatter chart.

  • The sorted column chart displays columns representing the number of awards won by directors with at least 50 total awards, sorted from highest to lowest and broken down by film genre.

  • The scatter chart shows a diagram of movies with at least one award win along with their TomatoMeter rating and their MPAA rating (G, PG, PG-13, or R).
