Vidi module serves as a guide to choose adequate visualizations from Timeline, Tagmap and GVS modules for specific data, and helps in process of preparing data and visualizations. It provides easy to use wizard for Timeline, Tagmap and GVS modules with visualizations preview.

Google Visualization API
The GVS module was built as a Drupal Views 2 style plug-in. It uses the Google Visualization API to display different types of charts. Pie, Bar, Column, Gauge, GeoMap, IntensityMap, Area, MotionChart and Scatter plot are supported at the moment. In Views style settings users can choose the fields (data), chart type and some additional options that they want to be displayed.

KML content type
ct_gearth is a new content type based on the Google Earth API. Users can attach .kml files to a node (with upload module), which in turn is displayed through the Google Earth API. If a user attaches several .kml files it is possible to choose between them via a drop-down box.

Tagmap is a Drupal Views2 style plugin. This module's main purpose is to visually present location related data where exact geographical borders are not available or where underlying geographical data need to be preserved. The module can accept numerical data either from an external source or from counting nodes (through taxonomy).
We made a text marker API which we use to display a geo-coded tag cloud over Google Map. There are two possibilities: to display taxonomy terms, or to display previously imported external data. The module provides an admin settings page for some basic options. Some of them can be overridden with views style plugin options. The user can also use cluster-marker to refine the display. To be able to use this option you have to put the file markerclusterer_packed.js (from http://googlegeodevelopers.blogspot.com/2009/04/markerclusterer-solution...) in the js directory.

Timeline Map was built as a Drupal Views 2 style plug-in.
It is based on Timemap.js project, so Timemap.js (from http://code.google.com/p/timemap/) has to be included in the module’s js directory.
It allows you to load one or more datasets onto both a map and a timeline simultaneously. Only items in the visible range of the timeline are displayed on the map. Timeline Map displays data represented in the timeline as markers on Google map.

The Importer module provides an easy way for creating database tables from various files. All variants of delimited text files are supported, and with an external class .xls files are also supported. With this module the user can also insert new data into an existing table, provided that the number of columns in the table (not counting the primary key column) matches the number of columns in the file. If the ordering of the columns is not matched, the user can alter the ordering in which the data is inserted. Types of the appropriate columns in the table and the file are displayed as a means of ensuring that no sql error is generated (unintentionally). If the user has a field in the data that should serve as a link to files in the file system, the procedure is as follows: - upload the data to the database ensuring that the appropriate field contains the file name of the file to which it should point - zip all files that are relevant to the table - upload files to the server using "Batch file upload" feature of the module, making sure that the appropriate table and field is selected. Uploaded files are saved in a directory of the users choice under the files/ directory (it has to be created by this module). After this, the data in the chosen field are updated with the relative path to files uploaded on the server. The original file names are stored in the utility table, so if the user wants to make a change, all that is necessary is that the new file that is packed and uploaded has the same name as the old one. Finally, there is an option to drop the table previously created by this module or delete previously uploaded files.
