Explore tabular infographics in ArcGIS Business Analyst Web App

ArcGIS Business Analyst Web App and ArcGIS Community Analyst allow you to create infographics for sites and areas of interest. Infographics are interactive reports that contain different types of data visualizations as well as capabilities like interactive on-screen viewing, a range of modern design elements, and interoperability with Business Analyst Mobile App. Tabular infographics are modern data tables that leverage infographic capabilities. A tabular infographic is similar to a classic report but with an updated design and improved readability for accessibility.  

To access ready-to-use tabular infographics, explore the gallery in ArcGIS Business Analyst Web App Advanced, located on the Gallery tab of the infographic builder. The gallery currently features some of the most popular classic reports in the new tabular infographic format. You can also create custom tabular infographics by either starting from scratch or using existing classic reports.  

What are the design guidelines of a tabular infographic? 

The design guidelines for tabular infographics help you use uniform and streamlined styling. These guidelines are based on design and accessibility standards. Tabular infographics use an established hierarchy for color and font.
