How can I export or print content created on Active Places Power?

It is firmly our desire to enable users to take offline the analysis and reporting outputs generated within active places power.  Every table, chart and map within the website can be exported.  Tables to Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Word.  Charts to PNG and JPEG image formats.   Maps to PNG, JPEG and PDF formats.  

Note, report result lists are not considered tables and therefore cannot be exported to Excel or Word.  These lists can be exported in csv format, via the Table Tab and report download button, which can then be opened within a number of different software packages including Excel.

To export tables and charts simply move the mouse cursor over the table or chart to display the export format options in the top right corner.  Click on the desired format to commence an export.  A download will be available through the browser’s download function; this will vary depending upon the browser used.  Note only the chart or table will be exported.  No other text (i.e. heading or supporting information) will be included.  

To export maps use the "Print Tools" menu list located above the map window.  Choose whether to include the legend and click on the desired format to commence an export.  A download will be available through the browser’s download function; this will vary depending upon the browser used.  


Which mapping API is used to provide the map and GIS capabilities?

Active Places Power mapping capabilities are built upon Esri's ArcGIS Server software (version 10). The Network Analyst extension is used to calculate catchment areas and perform route based analysis. The web mapping capabilities use the ArcGIS API for JavaScript (version 3.0).


Which web browsers are supported?

To ensure the best experience when using Active Places Power, it is recommended that the latest browsers are used such as Chrome (Google), Safari (Apple) and Edge (Microsoft). 

Note Active Places Power will still function with Internet Explorer but this browser will no longer be actively supported to allow for newer features of JavaScript coding to be used.
