EEA Daviz product
EEA DaViz is a plone product which uses Exhibit to lets you easily create web pages
with advanced text search and filtering functionalities (facets), with interactive maps,
timelines, and other visualizations like these examples can be seen


.. contents::


It is simply to use, needs no desktop application, everything is done
through the web by uploading an "excel file" and configure its visualisations.

See also initial project wiki page
for the reasoning behind this project.

Main features

EEA Daviz generates different views and a customisable faceted search on CSV/TSV data
uploaded in a Plone site. Just upload a CSV file under a normal Plone file and
go to actions menu and click convert to exhibit view, the page will automatically
refresh to edit the Exhibit view

More details about how to use this package can be found at the following link:



To install eea.daviz into the global Python environment (or a workingenv),
using a traditional Zope 2 instance, you can do this:

 * When you're reading this you have probably already run
   ``easy_install eea.daviz``. Find out how to install setuptools
   (and EasyInstall) here:

 * If you are using Zope 2.9 (not 2.10), get `pythonproducts`_ and install it

       python install --home /path/to/instance

   into your Zope instance.

 * Create a file called ``eea.daviz-configure.zcml`` in the
   ``/path/to/instance/etc/package-includes`` directory.  The file
   should only contain this::

       <include package="eea.daviz" />

.. _pythonproducts:

Alternatively, if you are using zc.buildout and the plone.recipe.zope2instance
recipe to manage your project, you can do this:

  * Add ``eea.daviz`` to the list of eggs to install, e.g.::

      eggs = eea.daviz

  * Tell the plone.recipe.zope2instance recipe to install a ZCML slug::

      recipe = plone.recipe.zope2instance
      zcml = eea.daviz

  * Re-run buildout, e.g. with::

      $ ./bin/buildout

You can skip the ZCML slug if you are going to explicitly include the package
from another package's configure.zcml file.
