Bar Charts Brought to Life: Index of Interactive Information for HTML and PDF

Bar Charts and the Information Challenge

Whether one is an unknown entrepreneur or Donald Trump, an elementary school teacher or a university president, a 6th grader researching other countries or a government leader visiting them, each person in any capacity has at least one thing in common: information.

Let me explain why I use bar charts as an example. Whether information is being acquired or distributed for business or educational purposes, the challenge that arises is how to compile all of the information. Bar charts are just one example of a variety of instruments for displaying information which is precise, yet simple.

This time is referred to as the "Information Age" because information about anything under the sun (and beyond) is now available in every home and hamlet. However, though information is one thing each person has in common, our interaction with it sets us apart. In many cases, the way information is accumulated may propel one business beyond the rest. On the other hand, the way information is disseminated may also set one business ahead of the rest. Can something as simple as bar charts make the difference?

Tools for Information Improvement

Bar charts, pie chart, or other types of business chart and business graphs are easily created using graphing programs with almost any word processing software. To create graphs in word processor for a database chart or a database graph is relatively simple and user-friendly.

Creating graphs and charts can also be done for a company website using almost any graph program or business mapping software.

HTML and PDF Interactive Information

Using the above-mentioned tools, compiling information using charts, graphs, and other informational mapping becomes very simple. But problems arise after initially compiling information. Online charts and graphs may include net charts, php graph, flash chart, perl graph, perl map, dynamic chart, dashboard chart, dashboard map, dashboard graph, coldfusion chart, coldfusion graph, dynamic flash, globfx, visual mining or any other data visualization tool, like a web graph or an executive dashboard. Creating these visuals online generally require .net technology.

There are online charts and graphs on the one hand, but there are also many charts and graphs made from word processing applications. The latter are usually saved as a PDF file, in order to preserve the visual integrity of the information when printing reports. These PDF files may include an archive report in the form of an archive PDF, api java PDF, PDF charts, perl PDF, PDF invoice, cold fusion PDF, C++ PDF, other pie charts and bar graphs. These are usually created using Adobe Acrobat.

Bridging the Gap Between PDF and HTML

The disconnect usually comes in trying to convert a PDF file to an HTML file or an HTML file to a PDF file. The gap between HTML and PDF has been bridged by an advanced PDF to HTML converter in recent data visualization software.

Now, visual information a user prints from the internet will no longer cut off because it does not fit the page, nor will a PDF document be distorted while writing it to the internet. Do bar graphs make the difference? The answer is that it depends on how you use it. With the possibility of interaction between HTML and PDF now available to the 6th grader, Donald Trump, and everyone in between, accessing and disseminating information can propel everyone forward into the Information Age.
