Authoring schematics - tutorial

Schematics are visualizations that can map data directly onto an arbitrary graphic representation. Schematics can, for example be floor plans, seating arrangements, mechanical drawings, or schematic geographical representations.

A schematic is a library of similar images, like seating plans or stadium layouts, that use similar keys and that are conceptually bundled together to provide some organization.

The SVG needs to be annotated with certain parameters to link the SVG elements and the dataset values. More features are supported, such as a highlighting regions and the ability to work with SVG views.

Schematics support the following interactions:

  • Pan and zoom
  • Thumbnails
  • Filters
  • Selections
