Advanced Visualizations

Pentaho Labs helps explore more sophisticated data sets of structured and unstructured data, delivering greater insights through visual representations of blended data that go beyond just two-dimensional visualizations. Embracing the open model, Pentaho Labs is able to quickly innovate and ultimately provide support for new ways of visualizing Big Data.

Pentaho Labs Engineers frequently experiment with Advanced Visualizations using open visualization libraries, unlocking possibilities for new use cases. Below are some examples of current visualizations being developed within Pentaho Labs that are designed to solve broad, as well as some very specific analytic needs.

POLYGONAL GEOMAP – MULTIDIMENSIONAL VISUALIZATION MAP

Advanced maps that represent political, environment, property, or business-based boundaries that use custom color gradients to aid in understanding.

SANKEY – RELATIONSHIP DIAGRAM

The Sankey diagram shows how measures or values from one dimension or level of data flow into, and contribute to, another one.

WAFER - FLOW OF INFORMATION THROUGH A CIRCUIT

Industry specific visualizations are available through Pentaho’s open architecture. This visualization was created to show quality levels of integrated circuits printed on a silicon wafer. New visualizations like this can be created as plugins in Pentaho Business Analytics.

BLENDED GIS - PENTAHO AND 3RD PARTY INTEGRATED GEOMAP

This visualization shows an ESRI map displayed with Pentaho’s mapping bubbles to indicate additional values.
