Data Visualization: Charts

Unlock Your Data’s Potential with Powerful, Clear, and Easy-to-Create Charts

Data Visualization: Charts

Orbit Reporting and Analytics enables you to visualize all of your data with interactive charts. Images, such as charts, bring your information to life and help you make decisions that propel your business forward.

Humans are more likely to remember images than text.

In fact, 65 percent of people are visual learners.

But, as is often the case, your operational reports contain pagesrows and columns of numbers and text that aren’t friendly to visual learners.

When you use charts to tell your data’s story, you can quickly absorb information. Visuals, including charts, make complex data accessible so you can easily interpret it.

However, creating meaningful charts is often a complicated and painful process. Most reporting tools won’t integrate with all of your data sources—leaving you with partial answers to your questions. To get more information, you may resort to exporting your reports to Microsoft Excel and then merging data from additional sources. However, this manual work is not only time-consuming but can lead to errors that negatively affect your decisions.

Also, many legacy reporting tools make it hard for you to create, revise, and interpret charts. For example, they might not let you drill down for more information or create multiple visuals from the same data set.

Some tools are so complex that they require IT expertise to create a basic pie chart. But you can’t wait days, or weeks, for someone from IT to develop your charts and reports when you need to analyze data now.

Orbit Reporting and Analytics makes it easy for you to understand, analyze, and communicate your data’s story in clear, accessible charts—from summary level to drill down detail.

Clearly Visualize Your Data

Every set of data can tell a different story, so you must have the control and flexibility to pair the right information with the right visuals. Orbit provides a variety of charts to suit all of your reporting needs and preferences.

Do you need to display your data in multiple formats to suit various use cases and individual preferences? With a single click, you can switch the visual to represent your data.

For example, if you are analyzing data, you may wish to try multiple views as you identify and synthesize the key takeaways. If you are sharing a chart or dashboard with others, you may choose different visuals based on their personal preferences.

The ability to drill down into your chart’s data is vital for effective data visualization.

Harness the Power of Geospatial and Location Intelligence

Location and spatial data are part of most data sets and can affect the quality of your reporting insights. In particular, geospatial relationships can help you add further visual context to understand the story your data is telling you.
