Investment Costs Chart

Purpose: The Investment Costs chart allows users to compare the investment costs for each location. 

A user can determine what type of locations to include based on if the location has been identified as Retain, Marginal, Withdrawn, Eliminated, and/or a combination of the four options. A user can also determine what primary categories to include in the chart. 

Overview: The Investment Costs chart, accessed by selecting the Investment Costs button located under the Financial Analysis column on the Charts page, compares the estimated investment costs of each location based on the categories included in the evaluation, such as land cost. The chart displays the estimated investment costs for each location in a stacked bar chart format which allows a user to quickly reference the total anticipated investment costs as well as the value for each cost component. Each cost component is displayed in a different color to differentiate its value as a part of the overall cost for that location. The cost component colors are consistent across each location to allow for quick comparison of categorical costs.
