8 Box Plot Visualizations 8 Box Plot Visualizations Product: IBM Cognos Active Report Area of Interest: Reporting

9 Box Plot Visualizations 9 1 Introduction Boxplot 1.1 Purpose This document demonstrates how to add box plot extensible visualizations to active reports in Report Studio. 1.2 Applicability To perform the tasks in this document, you must use IBM Cognos Business Intelligence with visualizations imported by the administrator and made available to users.

10 Box Plot Visualizations 10 2 Adding a box plot visualization to an active report You can add a visualization to an active report to efficiently represent your data. Box plots show groups of numerical data from a distribution of numbers, such as minimum and maximum values, upper and lower quartiles, median values, and outlying values. This is an example of a box plot visualization: Before you begin

11 Box Plot Visualizations 11 Your administrator must make the visualizations available in the Visualization Gallery. If you use Microsoft Internet Explorer to view visualizations, you must have Microsoft Silverlight 5 installed on your computer. Firefox or ipad users do not need Silverlight. About this task You add data to a visualization by inserting data items in drop zones. Visualizations will not run until all of the required drop zones contain data items. When all the required drop zones contain data items, additional drop zones appear for extra categories or values. You can use extra categories and extra values to filter data or set variables. Extra items are not visible in the visualization. When working with dimensional data sources, if the visualization does not contain a measure against which to plot data, you must provide one. For example, if you add a single member to the values drop zone, such as '2012', the default measure drop zone appears in which you must insert a measure. Attention: The supported properties for a visualization are determined by the visualization definition. For this type of visualization, the following Data Container properties are not applicable: Drill-Through Tooltips Set Variable Values Container Select Application Drill-Through Show Hover For the Clickable Regions property, the only applicable option is Visualization as a Whole. 3 Procedure 1. Create a new active report or open an existing active report. 2. From the Toolbox tab, drag a Visualization icon to the work area.

This is an example of a clustered bar visualization: Before you begin Your administrator must make the visualizations available in the Visualization Gallery. If you use Microsoft Internet Explorer to view visualizations, you must have Microsoft Silverlight 5 installed on your computer. Firefox or ipad users do not need Silverlight. About this task You add data to a visualization by inserting data items in drop zones.

62 Stacked Bar Visualizations 62 Visualizations will not run until all of the required drop zones contain data items. When all the required drop zones contain data items, additional drop zones appear for extra categories or values. You can use extra categories and extra values to filter data or set variables. Extra items are not visible in the visualization. When working with dimensional data sources, if the visualization does not contain a measure against which to plot data, you must provide one. For example, if you add a single member to the values drop zone, such as '2012', the default measure drop zone appears in which you must insert a measure. Attention: The supported properties for a visualization are determined by the visualization definition. 39 Procedure 61. Create a new active report or open an existing active report. 62. From the Toolbox tab, drag a Visualization icon to the work area. 63. From the Visualization Gallery, select the Bar Clustered icon and click OK. 64. From the Source tab, drag items to the appropriate location in the data container: a. Under Values, drag a measure to the Size drop zone. b. Under Categories, drag an item to the Categories drop zone. c. Under Categories, drag an item to the Series drop zone. 65. Add any active controls that you want and run the report.

65 Stacked Bar Visualizations Adding a stacked bar visualization to an active report You can add a visualization to an active report to efficiently represent your data. Bar charts use horizontal data markers to compare individual values. You can use bar charts to compare discrete data or show trends over time. Bar charts are preferred over column charts when category names are long. Stacked charts are useful for comparing proportional contributions within a category. They plot the relative value that each data series contributes to the total. This is an example of a stacked bar visualization: Before you begin Your administrator must make the visualizations available in the Visualization Gallery. If you use Microsoft Internet Explorer to view visualizations, you must have Microsoft Silverlight 5 installed on your computer. Firefox or ipad users do not need Silverlight.
