Cross-Tab Data Visualization (Trellis)


Demo Instructions & Notes:
  1. Notice the sparkline charts embedded in a crosstab grid. On the x-axis, we have a list of domains. On the y-axis, we have different regions listed.
  2. The trellis visualizations allow us to quickly compare data horizontally and vertically with visual sparklines. Not only can you quickly see an individual domain's trend for a region (i.e., domain1 in Europe), but you can also see how domain1.com traffic compares across all three regions. We can also quickly tell if the traffic is meeting our goals by comparing if the trrend line is above or below the KPI line (dotted line).

Concepts shown in demo:
This is another example of how several standard Silverlight features can be combined to create a very powerful business intelligence visualization. Trellis visualizations are key analytical features in statistcal software that can cost several thousand dollars.
