Expecting someone to lecture me how this is not an actual graph in 5...4...3...
I guess I would call this particular example a bar chart as there are no interrelations or connections among two or more things here.
I don't think there's a strict nomenclature. When I hear "graph", I expect an x/y curve plot (that's what you use graphing paper for). Informatics/mathematics people might expect boxes and arrows (related to graph theory), but it's a *graph*ical representation of stuff, where geometry represents information, so it's totally fine by me.
@adinfinitum I used to daydream a lot at school. I kinda want to see all the teachers who used to tell me off and tell them I only did it because their lessons were so boring.
See thread. Mind you: I know virtually nothing about the actual definition of the word "graph" 😂
> In mathematics, a knot is an embedding of a topological circle S¹ in 3-dimensional Euclidean space, R³, considered up to continuous deformations. A crucial difference between the standard mathematical and conventional notions of a knot is that mathematical knots are closed—there are no ends to tie or untie on a mathematical knot.
I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as a graph, is in fact, a plot, or as I've recently taken to calling it, gnuplot.
From it's FAQ:
"gnuplot is not related to the GNU project or the FSF in any but the most peripheral sense. Our software was designed completely independently and the name "gnuplot" was actually a compromise. I wanted to call it "llamaplot" and Colin wanted to call it "nplot." [...] I decided that "gnuplot" would make a nice pun and after a fashion Colin agreed."
