Data Visualizations

A diagram is similar to a map visualization. You use it to display spatial information in the form of shape, path, and symbol elements.

You use maps to display geographic information in the form of shape, path, and symbol elements. Then you connect these elements to data so that their appearance will change based on data values.

A state indicator is a basic data visualization control that displays a different color and/or shape depending on the state of a measure.

A legend automatically provides a key to the colors used by other data visualization controls such as charts and maps.

A table visualization lets you display data from a metric set using a tabular view. A table is also known as a data grid or data table.

A chart lets you visualize one or more measures along a dimension or hierarchy, such as the sales amount compared with the sales target for each month.

A gauge is typically used to visualize single-valued metrics, such as the total revenue for the year-to-date. Available gauge types include linear and radial gauges.

A data label is a data-driven text label which you can add to your dashboard, report, or scorecard in order to display a measure or hierarchy value.

A treemap is a visualization that can display a large amount of hierarchical data using nested rectangles of varying size and color.

This article explains how to configure the settings of your data visualization.

This article gives specific examples of how to configure the visualization tab of the Data Analysis Panel for various types of data visualization controls.

A data image is an image control connected to data, which you can add to your dashboard, report, or scorecard. Use it to show a different image depending on data values.
