Exporting Graphs and Snapshots
VantagePoint does not include a simple graphing or charting engine. However, data can be exported for use in graphing software such as Excel. Information for how to do this can be found in the Exporting Raw Data section. Additionally, users can run a script that will perform a macro, exporting the data and creating a chart or graph in Excel. See the Scripts section for more information. If the computer system on which VantagePoint is running has the program BizInt Solutions Smart Charts, VantagePoint can export directly to that program using the command File --> Export to Smart Charts.
Finally, users can export data to create a 3-D co-occurrence matrix using the command File --> Export to 3-D Co-occurrence Matrix. While viewing a matrix, users must select a third-dimension field, and the system will then save the data into a .csv file, which can be imported into graphing software.
One unusual feature is the Export to 3-D Co-occurrence Matrix function. While this may be a helpful function, it is rare that a system will format exportable data to be viewed in 3-D, rather than including a way to graph said data within the system.
