Overview

The WPF 3D area charts are popular for showing volume changes over a period of time. This chart looks like the 3D line chart that contains space between the line and the X-axis, filled with color. The only difference between 3D and 2D area chart is its appearance. The 3D area series has a visual third-dimension axis which holds no additional information. It supports rotation and selection.
