Bar chart

A bar chart can be used for comparing values. Here we create a horizontal bar chart.

The pgfplots package provides an easy way. In this example, I reduced axis data to focus on the values. So I do not show x-axis and y-axis, or axis ticks.

Full explanation in Chapter 9, Creating Graphics: Building a bar chart
