Visual Overview is one of the most powerful graphical bubble-up and drill-down UIs in the industry, with tremendous user-definable capabilities to create highly interactive mimic diagrams and control UIs. If you are not yet familiar with what Visual Overview is exactly and how it hooks into our client architecture, then here is a quick introduction. Investing in knowledge about how you can leverage Visual Overview is guaranteed to pay off big time. And it’s actually fun too.

Getting Started

For a comprehensive overview of what you need to get started with your Visual Overview journey, you can visit the “Getting started with Visual Overview” page in our DataMiner Dojo’s Resources section.

Our ziine demo system contains examples of many basic shapes. You can also download the Visio file that is used there to analyze it. Navigate to the DataMiner Agent using DataMiner Cube and open the “Visual Overview Design Examples” view.  You will find a series of tab pages at the top (linking, data, positioning, etc.) and each time a series of sub-tab pages (param, pie/bar chart, trend chart, etc.), as illustrated below.  Browse through them to explore the features. To get a copy of the file, right-click the Visual Overview page and select Download Visio File.
