The samples you see on this page were obtained by connecting a sample data source to templates from the Spatial Dashboard solution, to demonstrate some of the solution's capabilities and the results you can achieve.
These documents are vector graphic documents, created in ConceptDraw PRO using ConceptDraw Live Objects technology. They are available for reviewing and modifying from the ConceptDraw Solution Park. The Spatial Dashboard Solution is available for all ConceptDraw PRO users.
You can download sample data sources for all dashboards to see how changes made to data effect dashboard appearance.
Example 1: Spatial Dashboard — New European Customers
This sample was created in ConceptDraw PRO using the Spatial Dashboard solution, and demonstrates the solution's capabilities and the results you can achieve using this solution. All the charts on this page change automatically when the data source changes.
This spatial dashboard is a thematic map of Europe with a legend. The thematic map shows new customer numbers by country.
Spatial Dashboard helps you to visualize spatial info on Thematic Maps, in particular on Choropleth Maps which show how your metric varies across territories; or displays the variability within regions.
Why use it?
Thematic Maps which show how your metric varies across territories, or display the variability within regions.
You can use the Thematic maps:
To show specific metrics for particular locations
To show general metrics for spatial patterns
To compare patterns on a number of maps visually
You can include Thematic Maps in your business or technical Dashboards to show the spatial distribution of your Business Metrics or technical measurements.
Showing Spatial Information
Mobile computing and networks of local services have changed their business decision making, so the collection and processing of spatial info are integral parts of Business Performance Analysis.
Thematic maps are designed for visualizing the particular themes connected with specific geographic areas. In other words, Thematic maps tell visual stories about the displayed areas.
Unlike geomaps, Thematic maps use geographic data such as coastlines, boundaries and places only as points of reference for the depicted thematic info.
One of the most used types of Thematic maps are Choropleth maps. They use coloring or shading of specific regions as counties or states to show metric variations across regions or variability levels within territory. Choropleth maps commonly use different hues to display qualitative variants, and different levels of saturation or lightness to show quantitative variations.
Spatial Dashboards use Thematic Maps to dynamically visualize the regional distribution of actual Business Metrics or technical measurements from the web or local sources.
Spatial Dashboards empower decision making, by visualizing the spatial context of Business Metrics or technical measurements.
