Visualization projects, applications, and dashboards

The presentation of data generated by DataV in dashboards is known as a visualization project. It is also called as a visualization application or a large screen project. DataV is a tool that converts data into various charts and maps in order to present data to users dynamically and in real time.

Data sources

When you create a large screen project with DataV, you must specify the source of the original data. Data sources used with DataV can include the following:

  • Database
  • Static data
  • API
  • Others

For more information about adding a data source, see Add a Data Source.


A canvas is also called an interface editor and is the main functional area of DataV. You can adjust settings like layouts and colors for a project, bind data sources with charts, and publish various applications in a canvas.


For more information about canvas functions, see Canvas Operations.
