The OpenGraph and GraphBuilder products now do “much more” than graphing and graph-oriented layout, according to John Brilhart, VVI’s chief technical officer. For example, they’re used to make general purpose controls and diagrams and to form process control maps and nodes with executable functions using a real time compiler and virtual machine.
“To accommodate the broader features for these products we have renamed them Vvidget Tools and Vvidget Builder respectively,” Brilhart said. “Vvidget paralleling the word widget. For the near term we are still concentrating on our core assets of graphing and combined text and graph report generation … in the long term, we will enhance our products into more generally applicable tools, as the new name indicates, by exposing the built-in functionality to end users and developers using an evolutionary approach to product enhancement.”
VVI has also announced the availability of Peer Visual version 2.2 which adds 3D extrusion and other improvements. Peer Visual lets users make dynamic reports, charts, diagrams and other visuals for print and Web distribution.
“Version 2.2 of Peer Visual adds 3D orthographic projection effects,” Brilhart said. “These effects are immediately available with our chart service, Vvidget Tools and Vvidget Builder products as well. We are also working on providing other effects and projection operators for future versions of all these products.”
