Work with list & label 


Cartegraph users primarily leverage the Ad-hoc Designer to create charts and tables for purpose-built reports. This web control is built on the ASP.NET MVC Framework and is completely browser-based, fitting seamlessly into Cartegraph’s easy-to-use web application.

The Ad-hoc Designer provides a wide range of charts, and is easy and intuitive to use. If advanced report modifications are required — such as legends, label placement, and orientation adjustment — Cartegraph customers switch to the Web Designer.

The final charts and reports are then displayed in Cartegraph’s web application via the HTML5 Viewer. The viewer also enables interactive reporting through drilldown and report parameters. This makes it possible for Cartegraph’s clients to customize their reports even further by showing or hiding tables, sorting data according to their needs, applying filters via report parameters, and drilling down to a greater level of detail.
