Histograms arrives in Google Drive Sheets

Google today announced a new feature in the Google Drive Sheets editor: the ability for Histogram-style graphics.

The Google Help Center explains how it works:

“A histogram shows the distribution of a data set. In the first column of the spreadsheet, place markers for your data groups. In subsequent columns, place numeric values, each representing items in a distribution. Only one column of data is needed to generate the histogram. For each column, the values ​​for all rows are grouped in numeric ranges. The histogram displays the number of values ​​in each interval, using the height of each bar to represent the count of the values ​​”.
