Application Landscapes are diagrams and dashboards of essential value. Using Dragon1, you can generate a visualization using a template, excel sheet and a JSON-API and focus on high-quality data, resulting in great analysis.

Above you see an interactive example of a generated Applications Architecture diagram in the Viewer. The Dragon1 Viewer is an application that can be used on dragon1.com/viewer, but it can also be embedded on any website or be run locally on your laptop or server.

You can also have such a generated Application Landscape by doing the demo.

We have provided a Visualization Template and Excel Sheet you can use to generate your own Application Landscape on Dragon1.

Switch on the Dashboard

Click the Edit button in the Viewer and then click the Dashboard button.

You get extra information on the right-hand side that helps you to manage your transformation with the diagram.
