Lumira Bullet Chart Explained

Bullet chart is designed by Stephen Few and is a good visualization which represents measures with respect to ranges and targets. Bellow is the chart how it looks like with the Metrics as text on the left side and grey rectangles which represent the ranges on top which the measures are plotted as blue bars. The vertical black bar indicates threshold’s or targets.


The original source of the chart can be found here.

Dimensions: Label

Measures: Ranges, Markers and Values

The Chart is implemented in lumira using sdk with the above dimensions and measure groups. The full code with manifest and feed definition files can be downloaded here.

The following video will explain clearly how the chart is implemented using the above hello sap sample, it is suggested you go through the hello sap video first and then go through the bullet chart video.

Thank you,

Hemanth

      Hey Hemantha,

      Many of the pictures and links aren't working.

      Is there some way we can re-upload this information?

      It's GREAT!

      It's strange ... When I view them from the actual page, they all show up as blank. When I view them from the communication pane, they're all there.

      Hamanth, can you include all the links for the video's that you posted?

      We mentioned this on today's Hangout! We were live!!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IBDXp4q1leE

      By SP14 it will be lot easier to create lumira extensions, internally we are working on some tools which will simplify the whole process.

      Thanks
