# Dot Quadrant Chart in QM

**Dot Quadrant Chart** is an alternative type of data visualization for four **KPI**s on one common field. Its essence lies in the organization between the main diagonals of a square matrix of four triangular areas with a hundred of cells in each. Each triangular region displays its **KPI**, with traversal of the cells begins from the vertex of the triangle in the center of the matrix. I put a gray circle symbol into all the cells using the formula, and then I change the color by conditional formatting to the right number of cells proportional to the value of **KPI**.

Below, I show fictional **KPI**s in statics and dynamics.

The principle of filling the **Dot Quadrant Chart** with values in the range [0, 100] is shown below:

Good luck.

Below is another version of the **Dot Quadrant Chart**. This time, the matrix cells field is divided into four squares of one hundred cells in each. The principle of symbolsÂ shadingÂ inside squares is the same as for symbols inside triangular areas (see above).

Good luck.

**Dot Quadrant Chart by means of Scatter (2D): a Square Shape**.

Rather than regular matrices, Scatter (2D) chart is used here as a quad indicator. Plus a little bit trigonometry… and here’s what happened in the end:

Nice job!
