Visual Designer

What is the Visual Designer application?

The Visual Designer is a customizable online modeling, presentation, flowcharting, and diagramming application that you can use to create models, views, and visualizations. You can create static, dynamic, interactive, and animated visualizations (diagrams, sketches, drawings, and impressions).

You can create view templates, so if the data in your model changes you do not need to redraw the visualization, you just update the view with one click.

Supported Modeling Languages and Standards

The visual designer supports the following standards and modeling languages out of the box:

  • Flowchart
  • BPMN
  • UML
  • ArchiMate
  • Dragon1
