Map Visualizations

Maps are one of the most recognizable forms of data visualization. They display geographic information in the form of shape, path and symbol elements. Dundas BI comes stocked, out-of-the-box, with a whole variety of map files for you to analyze geographical data with. There are maps of cities, of continents, of countries, of territories, and much more. But what if you need something highly specific? Well, with Dundas BI, you can actually bring in your own map files.

Watch our NEW video - There's a Map for That - in Off the Charts. In this video we’ll show you how you can bring in your own map files to Dundas BI (heads up, we use a real example from Game of Thrones!).


Delivery API 

In this 5th installment of Innovation Never Rests, we cover the Export Delivery API, which allows users to export and deliver Dundas BI exports through notifications. We look at the role it plays in creating a more collaborative BI experience. What we've done in Dundas BI is create a new type of API - one that essentially allows you to create new ways of sharing and delivering your emails.This blog covers the specific integration with Slack, but with this API, you can actually extend Dundas BI and easily integrate with any type of environment that you want to share exports to.  

Innovation Never Rests Series

In case you've missed any installments in our Innovation Never Rests series, we're reposting them below. This series takes a deeper look into the newest features and functionalities available in Dundas BI and explores the impact each can have.

Enjoy! And don't forget to also check out our new educational video and blog site - Off the Charts with Jeff - for even more great content.

Slideshows in Dundas BI

Dundas BI features a built-in slideshow mode that allows users to display their own selection of dashboards or other views in a sequence. Very similar to PowerPoint presentations, you can use this mode as part of a slide reel and show several dashboards to display key metrics. This can be a very powerful way to share key business metrics with your team. Everything you need to get started with slideshows is in this article.
