When I see "bumps chart" mentioned on Junk Charts I fear it's going to be another line chart (quantity vs stage), but this is the real deal (rank vs stage).


derek: this is a nice example of the canonical Bumps chart. I don't see a need to classify those two charts as different types, just as we don't give different names to quantity vs time and rank vs time.
