Isometric map editor

Advanced visualisation of service modelling

Online isometric map editor

Obsidian offers an isometric map editor which allows you to create and edit a variety of different diagrams:

  • Hierarchal process mapping, showing service statuses and service dependencies
  • Infrastructure mapping, showing CI status (servers, clusters, apps, devices, etc.)
  • Location maps representing the primary organization locations to any desired level of detail (building, floor, section, etc.)

 

All Obsidian isometric maps include automatic data2text processing in natural language as a default feature.

Hierarchal maps

Once service modelling is complete, one of the most useful display features is the hierarchal value map which portrays dependencies between different services.

 

An Obsidian hierarchal value map allows you to visualize the status of each service, using green, yellow or red, each being associated to different map icons, to select any of the following criteria:

  • Level of service availability
  • Level of service capacity
  • Quality of customer service support available from the service desk for services
  • Quality of service level for each of the services
  • Lowest level from the above criteria
  • Lowest level from sensors and alerts associated to any CI of the service

 

The same hierarchal map, with different criteria, can be used in various dashboards. For example, using the vale for lowest sensor level in a technical dashboard, with the objective of identifying which services have pending incidents to be resolved, or using the value for service level in a dashboard for management.

 

A hierarchal value map also allows you to portray cause-and-effect relationships between the services. If an unavailability of a service were to affect another service, the line joining them would also be highlighted in yellow or red.

All isometric maps can be edited directly from the dashboard by using a combination of different keys to access the new isometric map editor.

 

This map editor enables you to do the following:

  • Represent each of the different services in a configurable number of layers
  • Represent dependencies between services with the use of arrows
  • Export to SVG vector image format, converting arrows into isometric lines
  • Automate integration of the final diagram into Obsidian dashboards

Infrastructure Maps

Obsidian’s isometric map editor also offers a specific mode for representing infrastructure maps.

 

Using the previously implemented model for adding service level values, it is also possible to associate any intermediate model node to the isometric map’s components, allowing you to visually represent service status, clusters and apps, etc.

 

As with the services, it is possible to portray each element of the map using its corresponding colour for the below:

  • Level of availability
  • Level of capability
  • Lowest level from the above criteria
  • Lowest level shown by sensors and alerts associated to any of the service CIs

 

All isometric maps can be edited directly from the dashboard by using a combination of different keys to access the new isometric map editor.
