The application landscape map viewpoint above is auto-generated from a CSV file
information about applications and the context in which they are used. The landscape maps
a great deal of information in a compact form, showing the health of a domain clearly and
more information see the Archimate architecture viewpoints documentation.
In this example, we are fixing the y-axis with a pre-defined order of capabilities and
sequence of the x-axis. The process from raw data to the table above is as follows:
- Extract the unique values for the x and y axis;
- Determine the optimal sequences of values on the x-axis to position the same applications of
together in an order that is closest to the ideal desired order;
- Produce a table using the optimal x-axis and y-axis where cells containing multiple
applications of the same status in neighbouring cells merged.
These operations are performed in seperate calls to the library, therefore if you want a preset x
and y axis,
can skip the first two steps alltogether, or substitute your own methods.
