Visible Data: Charts as Data Views

Sat, February 19, 2011

When we build Data Visualizations, we Extract, Transform, Load Client’s Data into Data Warehouses, Multidimensional Cubes and Columnar Databases. Then we are ready to visually explore,

drilldown, slice and dice our data and analyse data patterns, like clusters, trends and outliers.

In order to do that, we need to view and interact with our data, so we need to present data in form of Data Views as interactive, searchable and synchronized Charts. Group of related and synchronized Charts which are good fit (UI-wise, and because of business logic) in one window or webpage we usually called a Dashboard.

In this post we present the Gallery of the most popular Charts, so you can review and choose for yourself which are better fit for your application. If you have a hard time to decide, PCA is ready to help you. But even if you think you know what you need, PCA can help to tune your choice, sharpen your business requirements, discover workflow and application specifications and build your Datastore, Data Visualizations and Analytical Dashboards. Let’s start with video preview of popular Charts:
