Visio supports Microsoft Office themes with their variants, and I have been experimenting with their affect on data graphics, so I thought I would create a document with examples of each theme applied to some data graphics. I would hesitate before using some of these, but it is interesting to see the appearance of each.
The linked data is from the AdventureWorks sample database that Microsoft provide on Codeplex for SQL Server 2014, and I created a new view vSalesTerritoryByFiscalYears to aggregate the sales by region. I applied a text callout, icon set, data bar and color by value to each, and inserted a vertical legend.
I have made the document available for download:
- Visio 2013 document : http://1drv.ms/1JWkNx8
- Saved as PDF: http://1drv.ms/1JWlcQf
I also saved the document as a web page, and this had the side-effect of creating an image of each page, which can be viewed in the gallery below.
I have just tried Sway for the first time too : https://sway.com/FrL2RKMGHw5cdLUz
