Among the new features in Visual Fusion 6.0 are a new timeline interface that lets users easily query their data based on time searches. The new time queries work interactively with geographic spatial queries and dynamic filtering, enabling a business user to drill down into complex data sets and gain insight based on place, time, and content.

Also, users now have more control over the appearance of the map, and can apply new labeling and styling options.

And the “Favorite views” section of the software has been enhanced to create the business data visualization equivalent of a bookmark, letting users easily create, tag, save, and share visualizations with colleagues.
