Here are just a few examples of Dot charts created using Chartz

The dot chart can be a very useful alternative to the horizontal bar chart. Data can easily be sorted by opening the Data editor and clicking on the X-value column.
A channel can accentuate the data; it can stop at the data point or cover the full chart width.
There are a variety of point shapes and sizes to choose, as well as options for gradient, dot border and dot shadow.
Dots can optionally be joined with straight lines.
And even the points can be suppressed to give a vertical equivalent to the line chart.
