Custom plugin for Pictocharts in Oracle Data Visualization

A Pictochart Custom Visualization plugin was just made available for free on Oracle BI Public Store. Anyone can download and deploy and use this plugin on Oracle DV Desktop in a few minutes.

A PictoChart uses discrete icons or images to visualize an absolute number or a percentage of a population that shares a certain feature. It is extensively used in infographics as a more interesting and effective way to present numerical information than traditional tables and lists. 

This particular plug-in comes with various options that let you choose if you wish to see these icons as an absolute value or as a percentage to total. There are different icon options to choose from. It also comes with various interactivity features like highlighting, filtering, selection etc which make it visually compelling.
