How to create a bar graph of most used platforms for previous year using Alma Analytics Data Visualization (DV)
In this blog post we will be using Alma Analytics Data Visualization (DV) to create a a bar graph of most used platforms for previous year.
We will do this using OAS (Oracle Analytics Server) Data Visualization, specifically how it is used with Alma in the framework of Alma Analytics.
Access the Data Visualization and create a project
Choose the Usage Data Subject Area
Filter by Usage Date > Usage Date Filter = Previous Year
Display the following fields:
- Usage Date > Usage Date Year
- Platform > Platform
- Usage Data Details – Release 5 > Usage Measures Total
(The visualization type below is ‘Table”)
Remove “Usage Date > Usage Date Year”. We added it temporarily for display to confirm that the filter was bringing the desired year.
Filter by ‘Usage Measure Totals” is in top 10:
- Drag Usage Data Details – Release 5 > Usage Measures Total to top filter section
- Click the down arrow > filter type > top bottom N
- Filter by top 10
Duplicate the existing visualization
- Menu > edit > duplicate visualization
Make new visualization be a bar graph
Change the sort of the table (original visualization) and the bar graph (the new visualization) to be from high to low for usage
