# General diagram types

General diagram types are diagrams with specific shapes and methodology present with multiple specific types in multiple fields of application.

 Block diagram Cycle diagram Cluster diagram Ladder diagram Network diagram Round diagram Spiral diagram Timeline Tree diagram Triangular diagram General diagram shapes

There are two general types here:

• General diagram shapes with a typical basic shape, and
• General concept diagram with a typical basic concept

This is not a general accepted classification of diagrams. It is made here to give an impression of the types of diagrams in the Wikimedia Commons at present.

## General diagram shapes

Basic or general diagrams shapes here are diagrams with a typical basic shape.

Overview of diagrams constructed in some type of general shape

### Block diagram

A block diagram is a diagram, in which the principal parts or functions are represented by blocks connected by lines, that show the relationships of the blocks. See also Category:Block diagrams.

### Cycle diagrams

Diagrams representing a cycle. See Category:Cycle diagrams

### Cluster diagrams

Diagrams in some shapes of a ladder, with two or more spots. See Category:Ladder diagrams

### Network diagrams

A network diagram is any diagram representing a network and or a diagram with building blocks in the shape of a network. See also Category:Network diagrams

### Round diagrams

Diagrams in a round shape. See Category:Round diagrams

### Spiral diagrams

Diagrams representing a spiral shape. See Category:Spiral diagrams

### Timeline diagrams

A timeline is a graphical representation of a chronological sequence of events, also referred to as a chronology. See also Category:Timelines

### Triangular diagrams

Diagrams in a triangular shape. See Category:Triangular diagrams

## General concept diagrams

Basic or general diagrams with a typical basic concept, present in multple fields of application.

Overview of the types of diagrams, representing a general concept

### Comparison diagram

Diagrams that compare objects between themselves, for example to show the largest planes or buildings. See Category:Comparison diagrams

### Flow diagrams

A flow diagram is a general type of diagram, that shows a sequence of activities and or decisions. See also Category:Flow diagrams

### Contrasts

• Abstract versus illustrated diagrams
• Spatial versus non spatial diagrams
• Statical versus dynamical diagrams
• is precedence diagram means flow diagram?
