CHAPTER
Creating Geographic Maps
Much of the rest of this book discusses techniques for designing textual reports. However, chart and Flash/Xcelsius integration chapters deviate from this direction, as does this chapter. Your reports can include not only textual information (for example, states, cities, and sales totals), but also a colorful map that, for example, plots sales totals by state. Using maps, you can display information in a way that helps to analyze geographical data more easily. In addition to regular groups and details section fields, Crystal Reports allows you to create maps based on online analytical processing (OLAP) grids and groups using specified order grouping.
