You know how to develop, but you have never used Design Studio before

To get started with Design Studio you should have it installed on your computer and have followed the installations guide adequately on our page overview.

The first basic step to familiarize yourself with Design Studio is to follow this Hello World! example – In this SAP Design Studio webinar replay, you are introduced to the process of developing custom components for SAP BusinessObjects Design Studio. The presentation includes a demonstration that will walk you through using the Design Studio SDK – SAP Design Studio – Hello World – YouTube

In this SAP Design Studio webinar replay, you are introduced to the process of developing custom components for SAP BusinessObjects Design Studio. The presentation includes a demonstration that will walk you through using the Design Studio SDK to create customer extensions which any designer can then use within the application – SAP Design Studio – An Introduction to Creating Components with the Design Studio SDK – YouTube

There are many Design Studio SDK articles on this site and this tutorial series does not break new ground in that respect.  What it does do, is try to bring a comprehensive, systematic approach to learning how to use the SDK. Your First Extension: A tutorial for building Design Studio extensions

Now we are going to dive a bit deeper into some custom map features you are able to develop for your Design Studio extension.

On the following blog we will be building a map-based visualization from scratch based on OpenStreetMap.org maps, that works especially well on low-scale or street level maps. We could have just had a series of bar charts with a text label, but that will not convey how for example buildings relate to each other. OpenStreetMap is an open source map of the world that individual contributors put together based on their local knowledge as well as satellite imagery. Much of the world is very well covered (especially Europe, it appears), going as detailed as individual buildings and even smaller elements. Let’s get started here: Preparing custom GeoJSON / topoJSON maps for use in Lumira and Design Studio

If a simple map-based visualization won’t cut it for you, and you are looking for more detail and precision, this is a blog you would want to read. You will need to work with GeoJSON to achieve this level of detail. There are quite a few articles on SCN related to GeoJSON/topojson, and you can find many of them here on this blog.
