Visualizing and mapping your data is a two-step process. In the first step, the StatPlanet Data Manager sets up the map you wish to use (see: obtaining free maps). In the second step, the StatPlanet Data Manager automatically imports your data. During this process three key dimensions of your data are modeled: the geographic dimension (data linked to map areas), the indicator dimension (topics or variables in your data file), and the time dimension (if any). Through this model, interactive maps and visualizations are automatically generated using best-practice data visualization principles.
StatPlanet Cloud is a SaaS application, so the application itself does not need to be hosted on your web server. Maps and data files are hosted on your own web server. At the user-end, the three components come together in the web-browser, integrating the map and data files within the StatPlanet Cloud application.
Information flows one way only, from the cloud/servers to the user's computer or device. No information is uploaded or otherwise recorded in the cloud.
StatPlanet Cloud consists of several independent panels which can be resized, repositioned, or hidden. To redesign the dashboard layout, click on any panel to drag and drop it into a new position. To resize a panel, click and hold the bottom-right corner of the panel. StatPlanet Cloud has a responsive layout system which automatically adjusts to the screen size, such as showing only one panel at a time on smartphones.
The new version is backward compatible with StatPlanet and can use the exact same data files. However, any map files need to converted to GeoJSON format. This is a simple process which is covered in our tutorial. We provide a free map conversion service to StatPlanet Cloud subscribers.
