NetCharts Pro is a comprehensive development tool that enables Java developers to quickly build dynamic, interactive advanced data visualizations that integrate with their data sources and server side Web applications or client-side Java applications.

The NetCharts 6.0 release contains a new chart gallery which includes hundreds of new sample templates, improved navigation and keyword search.

New charts available in NetCharts Pro and Applets 6.0:

  • 3D Barchart - Allows for the display of three dimensional data. By introducing the Z axis, users can compare multiple data series in one effective visualization, and can view the 3D chart from different perspectives to get a thorough understanding of the data.
  • Histogram Chart Utilized for analyzing data distributions by grouping or binning (putting data in a given range into a bucket); effective for situations where visualizing clear representation of groups of data to yield interval breakdowns is warranted.

Enhanced chart functionality of NetCharts Pro and Applets 6.0:

  • Legend Data Tables NetCharts 6.0 delivers chart options that support enhanced legends that contain data tables for creating visualizations that combine charts and tables that familiarize the NetCharts experience for Excel users.
  • Variable Width Barcharts - Allows users to customize the width of separate bars within a multi series barchart to visually signify and emphasize relevant series of data.

Additional new chart features include:

  • Connector lines in a stacked barchart connect bars in the same set for improved change tracking in particular sets of bars.
  • Chart borders can be designed with square, rounded or clipped corners, for custom border design of one, two or four corners of a chart.
  • Chart title styling has also been enhanced with backgrounds that can be formatted to span the length or width of a chart. This feature is commonly used to color code charts by subject in a dashboard, and as an effective way of implementing visual alerts.
