Configuring a visualization

Every visualization can be customized to help you present the data in a way that tells the story you need. Perhaps you need to limit the number of results in a table or on a column chart to show on the top 5 or 10. Or, maybe you need to dig into the target series, layers, and colors used in a map to show the trade area for a particular radio station using that station's colors.

All visualizations have general customizations (size and layout), but map, table, and chart visualizations have more specific customizations. Use the information in these topics to understand the configuration options available.

Drag and drop

You can rearrange any visualization on the page by dragging and dropping it to a new location. This feature makes it easier to tell your story in the order you think is most appropriate.

Resize

All visualizations come in three sizes: 1X, 2X (the default size), and 3X. You can use a mix of sizes within the same presentation to help you achieve the right balance between the data you want to show and what might fit on a PowerPoint slide.

2X is the largest size that fits on a PowerPoint slide.

To illustrate how size can make a difference in the data you show, consider the following bar chart, which has a lot of items on the Y-axis. It's shown at 1X size (previously the only size available):

A bar chart at 1X size, previously the only size available (data is lost and hard to read)

If we configure the same bar chart to use a height of 2X, the data becomes much more readable, and none of the data points are lost:

Visualization heights are controlled by the Chart Height, Map Height, and Table Height options in the configuration dialog box.
