Graphing Basics

You can include API calls in WebFOCUS procedures to create dynamic, sophisticated graphs that showcase your business data.

If you save a graph generated by a WebFOCUS procedure in Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) or Portable Network Graphics (PNG) format, you can produce a high quality image for display or print, with advanced features provided by the API calls.

WebFOCUS graphs are plotted on a Cartesian grid using the Virtual Coordinate System, introduced in this section. These topics describe all of the features for Scalable Vector and Portable Network Graphics.
