Interval Selection ExampleΒΆ

This is an example of creating a stacked chart for which the domain of the top chart can be selected by interacting with the bottom chart.

import altair as alt
from vega_datasets import data

source = data.sp500.url

brush = alt.selection(type='interval', encodings=['x'])

upper = alt.Chart(source).mark_area().encode(
    alt.X('date:T', scale=alt.Scale(domain=brush)),
    y='price:Q'
).properties(
    width=600,
    height=200
)

lower = upper.properties(
    height=60
).add_selection(brush)

upper & lower
