BigPicture is a diagramming software add-in for Microsoft Excel. With BigPicture, you can create mind maps to organise thoughts and ideas, or create dynamic maps from any type of spreadsheet data. BigPicture takes advantage of the fact that we humans are visual animals--mind maps and diagrams can help us grasp complicated information at a glance. Yet so much of the work we do relies on spreadsheets and data. BigPicture helps combine the power of both visuals and spreadsheets—all right in Excel.
- Strategic Planning: BigPicture allows you to translate your brainstorming process into a dynamic map of ideas and options that are easy to view and update. Create your mind maps with or without data—the process can be as free-form, or as detailed, as you need it to be. Use the slide-show tool for eye-catching, annotated presentations. Share your BigPicture diagrams easily, as you would an Excel document.
- Organisational Charts: Create org charts easily: convert salaries, titles, even performance notes—and automatically build a flexible chart that illustrates your organisation’s hierarchy, complete with customisable colors, pictures and icons. Expand branches to get a better view of departments and details, or collapse them to get a snapshot of your company as a whole. Any updates you make to your source HR data set are seamlessly incorporated throughout the entire chart.
- Data Exploration: Complex data tables are automatically converted into easy-to-read data maps and infographics. Expand or collapse your data maps at any node to explore or summarise as needed. Plus, all BigPicture data maps are linked to their source data, so updates and re-structuring of data maps can be done in seconds.
