Using the Map Expert

As you explore the charting capabilities, you will discover numerous data visualizations that will enhance the productivity of your reports and business users. Another valuable form of data presentation available in Crystal Reports is geographic mapping. This form of visualization enables the creation of reports that are logically grouped on geographically related information and can communicate meaningful information in a familiar mapping paradigm. When working with geographic data, you can quickly create a map or a map/chart combination on this data using the Map Expert.

The maps and mapping functionality provided within Crystal Reports are bundled from a third-party company—MapInfo. Additional map layers and types can be purchased directly from MapInfo and can be made accessible from Crystal Reports by adding them to the mapping folders under \Program Files\Map Info X. You can order additional mapping information from MapInfo at www.mapinfo.com.
