You want to represent data on a web page graphically: plot locations on a map; create bar charts or pie charts quickly; compare values visually
Microsoft.net technologies can take data and create instant iamges, as well generating image maps so that clicking on a hotspot on the image drills down further into the data.
- Often simple graphics are the best way to communicate meaning, particularly to visual people.
- When data can be dissected and represented in many different ways, a flexible system is required.
- Effective communication of information results in fewer support calls and misunderstandings.
