Interactive charts and thematic maps
To visualize interactive charts and thematic maps a browser software capable of showing so called (Scalable Vector Graphics) format pictures is needed. Internet Explorer 9, Firefox 3.5, Opera 9.0, Safari 3.1 and Google Chrome browsers are directly able to do this, while an extension called Adobe SVG Viewer should be installed for the browser Microsoft Internet Explorer 7–8. Its installation, under Windows NT, 2000 and XP, may only be made by a user with an administrator authorization. Beyond that, authorization is needed to run JavaScipt command files in the browser.
