Jinfonet Adds Geo Analysis to Reporting Software
June 3, 2014 Alex Woodie
Users who are interested in working with their data from a geographic standpoint will find the new version of Jinfonet Software‘s JReport to their liking.
JReport version 13 introduces a new Geo Analysis component that allows users to work with and visualize their data in a geographic manner. Users can scroll up and down in the maps and see how their data stacks up by different geographic region, including cities, counties, states, and regions.
Jinfonet says the new Geo Analysis feature, which works with maps from OpenStreetMap and Google Maps, extends traditional data analysis on static maps and provides a more dynamic method of interacting with geographic data. Users can customize how their geographic visualizations appear by adjusting the shape, size, and color of properties and labels in the map.
JReport 13 also brings heat maps and scrollable real time charts to the HTML5 interface. The product also gives users new layout options that allow them to scale charts by height and width. Jinfonet says product performance gains resulted from tweaking its data fetching and in-memory cube technology.
JReport is a lightweight suite of business intelligence tools that is often embedded into other Web applications. The software–which not only can pull data from DB2 for i but run on the IBM i server itself–includes a drag-and-drop report designer, a report distribution and management tool, an ad-hoc reporting and multi-dimensional module, a dashboard module, and mobile interfaces.
