Nevron Chart for SharePoint includes complete and unrivaled set of 2D and 3D charting types with many customization options is implemented to ensure that you have a superior set of data visualization methods “out of the box”.
Tree maps display hierarchical (tree-structured) data as a set of nested rectangles. Tree maps allow you to easily see patterns that would be difficult to spot in other ways, such as if a certain color is particularly relevant. A second advantage of tree maps is that, by construction, they make efficient use of space. As a result, they can legibly display thousands of items on the screen simultaneously.

Complete set of axis-related features designed to target even the most compelling charting requirements. The axes are largely automatic, allowing you to focus on your project, but if needed you can customize every aspect of their appearance and behavior.
Nevron Chart for SharePoint supports Primary and Secondary X and Y Axes. You can specify the X and Y axes on which each values data grouping (chart series) is scaled. Advanced settings allow you to make use of axis crossings, docking and percent positioning.
In 3D charting, the axis model is extended with an additional depth (Z) axis. The Z axis allows data to be plotted along the depth of the chart. It automatically scales in Numeric or Categorical scale mode, allowing the creation of XYZ scatters and XZ-plane categorical plots.
Special Radar and Polar axes are exposed for Radar and Polar charting types. These aim to provide advanced settings for complex requirements related to these charting types.
The Numeric Scale is automatically selected, depending on the respective chart dimension type. The following sub-modes are available:
- Number scale - displays any data in numeric format (profit, sales, percentages etc.)
- Angular scale - displays angular data in degrees, radians or grads (used in polar charts).
- DateTime scale - suitable for display of date-time data.
- ValueTimeline scale - advanced date-time scale, widely used in financial charts.
- RangeTimeline scale - advanced date-time scale, widely used in financial and project management charts.
The Categorical Scale is automatically selected, depending on the respective chart dimension type. It has the following advanced features:
- Supports unlimited grouping levels.
- Grouped and single-row labels.
- Multiple presets for groupings appearance and layout.
Axes can be docked to the chart sides (or polar rim) or crossed with another axis (at value or percent). In addition, axes can share a single chart edge.
Full control over the appearance, position and angle of the axis titles. The axis titles text supports advanced rich-text formatting.
Control over begin and end ruler caps appearance and shape. Options to highlight scale breaks on the ruler.
Ability to inflate the automatically calculated range in several ways. Ability to define a custom axis range.
Major and minor gridlines, with full appearance customization and control over the walls on which they are displayed.
Support for major and minor ticks with control over their appearance and position.
Axis Stripes highlight repeating ranges of data on the chart walls, with a controllable show/hide pattern.
Axis Sections conditionally modify the appearance of axis ticks, gridlines and labels, provided they are within a user-specified data range(s). This feature helps you to highlight important ranges of data along the axis.
Const Lines show constant lines (reference lines) at user-specified value(s). In 3D mode they are displayed as planes perpendicular to their owner axis.
Const Ranges allow you to visually highlight important axis ranges. The Chart supports range annotation of the plot area with controllable begin/end values and text.
Axis Scale Breaks skip a range of values on the axis. They are used to increase the readability of the chart, in cases when the data is clustered in distant data ranges (for example: half the data points are around 100 and the other half are around 1,000,000). Without scale breaks, such data cannot be visually compared. Nevron Chart for SharePoint provides support for manual and automatic scale breaks with full control over appearance and behavior. X and Y scale breaks can be crossed. Scale breaks are also displayed in 3D Mode (unique feature).
Advanced axis-label layout options, which let you resolve very complex axis-label overlapping cases.
Control over the formatting of values along numeric scales. Many advanced options for currency, percentage, scientific and date time label formatting are available.
Nevron Chart for SharePoint uses the Nevron Pivot Data Aggregation Engine. A simplified pivot charting model was first introduced in MS Excel - if you are using this feature of MS Excel then you already know the basics of pivot charting and its power.
In MS Excel, data groupings are simply created for field values and a predefined set of aggregate functions are available for calculating the series data point values.
In Nevron Chart for SharePoint you use expressions to define how the data is grouped, filtered and sorted. Expressions can reference field values from the dataset and you can use numerous mathematical, statistical, logical, date-time, and text functions to define complex grouping, filtering and sorting rules. Special aggregate functions are available for computing aggregate values (like sum, average etc.).
Because the Nevron Pivot Data Aggregation Engine is data source invariant, this allows you to create pivot charts from any data source, which can provide a table representation of its data.
Because Nevron Chart for SharePoint and Nevron Chart for Reporting Services are built on top of the Nevron Pivot Component framework, they are generally having the same functionality and features. This helps you streamline your IT reporting efforts and reduce your IT staff learning curve - be it SharePoint or Reporting Services - you know that Nevron provides the same powerful and consistent pivot charting functionality.
Nevron Chart for SharePoint is the fastest rendering chart inside SharePoint - in both 2D and 3D modes.
Nevron Chart for SharePoint has the best layout in 3D and the most advanced feature set in 3D - including: 11 predefined lighting modes, ability to specify element materials (control the way in which elements reflect light), largest charting types set in 3D, biggest set of shapes in 3D (applicable to pies, bars, markers, areas etc.).
Nevron Chart for SharePoint is the only chart for SharePoint environment to provide Adobe Photoshop like image filter effects, which are applicable to all chart elements - these include bevel, emboss, lighting filters etc. When it comes to shadows it is the only chart for Share Point, which has soft shadows (based on Gaussian and Radial blur image filters).

Nevron Chart for SharePoint includes the industry leading support for XY and XYZ scatters inside SharePoint.
This feature allows for the development of interactive dashboards and drill down reports. Parameters can be consumed from any expression, they can be passed as arguments to the newly added JumpToReport action. Parameters can also be directly integrated into any SharePoint page.
The Chart Web Part can be instructed to automatically refresh itself at the client side, at user specified intervals of time. This allows for the development of real time dashboards that automatically update themselves at the client side through AJAX, and eliminates the need for manual web page refresh.
All Cartesian Chart types support automatic non-overlapping data labels layout. The data label layout prevents labels from overlapping in both ordinal and scatter charts and works in 2D and 3D appearance modes.
Nevron Chart for SharePoint supports XML Formatted Texts. This feature is applicable to all elements which display text. It allows you to mix fonts, mix bold, italic underline formatting and many other advanced features like different fill styles, shadows, image filters etc. - all inside a single label, title etc. XML formatted texts use a format similar to HTML, but with many more advanced options.
