The Value Of Data Visualization Good Data Visualization... Shows the data Represents large quantities of data coherently and efficiently Helps the user to discern relationships in the data Encourages the eye to compare different pieces of data Does not distort what the data has to say Source: Tufte, E. R. (2001). The Visual Display of Quantitative Information. Graphics Press.
Hidden Speaker Notes Bad data visualization is still bad. No amount of pretty pictures will make up for lack of substance. Remember Tuft says: The representation of numbers, as physically measured on the surface of the graphic itself, should be directly proportional to the quantities represented. He measures the violation of this principle by the Lie Factor, defined as the ratio of the size of an effect shown in the graphic to the size of the effect in the data NEXT:
Chart Types In SSRS 2008 Column Column (3-D), Stacked (3-D), 100% Stacked (3-D), Clustered (3-D), Cylinder (3-D), Stacked Cylinder (3-D), 100% Stacked Cylinder (3-D), Clustered Cylinder (3-D) Line Line (3-D), Smooth Line, Stepped Line, Line with Markers, Smooth Line with Markers Shape Pie (3-D), Exploded Pie (3-D), Doughnut, Exploded Doughnut, Funnel (3-D), Pyramid (3-D) Area Area (3-D), Smooth Area (3-D), Stacked, 100% Stacked (3-D)Range Smooth, Range Column, Range Bar, Stock, Candlestick, Error Bar, Boxplot Bar Bar, Stacked (3-D), 100% Stacked (3-D), Clustered (3-D), Stacked Horizontal Cylinder (3-D), Stacked 100% Horizontal Cylinder (3-D), Clustered Horizontal Cylinder (3-D) Scatter Bubble Polar Polar, Radar (3-D) Pareto Histograms
Hidden Speaker Notes Cylinder (3-D), Stacked Cylinder (3-D), 100% Stacked Cylinder (3-D), Clustered Cylinder (3-D): All normal column charts, but with a nice new look Smooth Line, Stepped Line, Smooth Line with Markers: Smooth, no points. Separated lines. Funnel (3-D): Proportionately smaller, like website hits (home page vs subpages), Pyramid (3-D): Proportionately larger: like racking up debt :P Smooth Area (3-D): Used to display trends instead of individual points. Range Range Smooth, Range Column, Range Bar: Smooth, Range Column, Range Bar: A range chart type displays a set of data points that are each defined by multiple values for the same category Stock:, Candlestick: Same as stock but uses boxes, Stock: Uses up to four values per data point, Candlestick: Same as stock but uses boxes, Error Bar: Error Bar: Indicate the error in a reported measurement Boxplot: Boxplot: Convenient way of graphically depicting groups of numerical data through their five-number summaries (the smallest observation (sample minimum), lower quartile (Q1), median (Q2), upper quartile (Q3), and largest observation (sample maximum) NEXT:
Hidden Speaker Notes Stacked Horizontal Cylinder (3-D), Stacked 100% Horizontal Cylinder (3-D), Clustered Horizontal Cylinder (3-D): All normal bar charts, but with a nice new look Polar: A polar chart displays a series as a set of points that are grouped by category on a 360-degree circle Radar (3-D): A radar chart displays a series as a circular line or area. Unlike the polar chart, the radar chart does not display data in terms of polar coordinates Pareto: Hehe, not the economic principle, but still related. 100% axis + categories arranged in descending order Histograms: In statistics, a histogram is a graphical display of tabulated frequencies, shown as bars. It shows what proportion of cases fall into each of several categories: it is a form of data binning. (Height of black cherry trees) NEXT:

Introducing Gauge Gauge is a new data region in SSRS 2008 Two main gauge types Radial and Linear Scenarios Typically bound to a single or a few data points (value, target, goal, etc.) Perfect for KPIs
Upgrade from SSRS 2005 Background 2008 report designers author 2008 RDL. The level of upgrade is the report Upgrade occurs in memory in the 2008 designer; a copy of the 2005 Report is saved locally SSRS 2008 Server can render SSRS 2005 reports (including 2005 custom report items)
Upgrade from SSRS 2005 Data Visualization Reports with SSRS 2005 charts (w/o Dundas) SSRS 2008 reports w/native charts Reports with Dundas Charts and/or Gauge CRI SSRS 2008 Reports w/native charts Reports with Dundas exclusive features Multiple options Upgrade to Dundas 2008 custom report items Keep report in SSRS 2005 format Convert to a native SSRS 2008 report and drop exclusive features
Additional Features Available With Dundas Custom Report Items Chart Annotations Custom code Custom Legend Items Time Series and Forecasting Formulas Gauge Numeric and State Indicators Custom code Images Map and Calendar
