The Profiles module of InstantAtlas Server provides a powerful set of tools to design and deliver highly effective reports containing a mix of appropriate information relating to a specific area or number of areas. They support a wide range of chart types and tables, intelligent text, and images. This tutorial is aimed at InstantAtlas Server (IAS) administrators that wish to enhance their profile reports by adding an interactive location map.
Including a map at the top of a profile that shows the location of the area being reported on is useful for obvious reasons. An end user that is not familiar with the area will want to know where it is. A map also makes the profile more visually interesting, particularly if the rest of the profile is dominated by text and/or tables.
