Room Utilization

Example of a floor plan chart

Converts table charts into visual displays of space usage in environments like meeting rooms and offices, offering a layout view beyond mere usage statistics for a more intuitive understanding of space utilization.

Dynamic Metrics with a Chart Switch

Example of a chart switch

Allows users to seamlessly switch between line and bar charts. With dynamic dimensions and metrics, users can easily adjust chart parameters on-the-fly. It also offers flexible time comparison options and pre-defined dimensions/metrics for quick analysis

Gantt chart

Visualizes tasks and resources over time, essential for project management, production scheduling, and employee rostering. It offers a clear overview of project timelines, progress, and assignments.

Bi-directional Bar Chart

Offers advanced data comparison capabilities. Users can effortlessly compare two sets of data either vertically or horizontally, gaining valuable insights into data variations over time or across different items.

Dynamic Heatmap or Flexible Heatmap

A heatmap, a visual tool representing data through color gradients, commonly used in analytics to illustrate user behavior on webpages, can be elevated within GoodData by adopting radial or semi-radial views. These advanced perspectives empower users to discern recurring patterns and trends in time series data and cyclic variables with greater precision and depth.

The default heatmap displays data as a matrix where individual values, or the magnitude or density of data are represented using color gradients — just in flattened view.

Infographics Chart

Presents column or bar charts using intuitive icons to represent KPIs. This visualization simplifies data interpretation by leveraging visually distinct icons that effectively convey the measured concept. For instance, it could illustrate the comparison of health problems across genders with ease.

Range Bar Chart
