Viewport Data Visualization to allow formula calculations


It would be nice if it could be possible to link a formula to a data visualization viewport.
For example- I have a GIS map of a town that I can use to get the lot size and building square footage.  I can calculate the FAR (floor area ratio) of the properties with a worksheet and would like to be able to show the various FAR graphically in a viewport.
I would like to take record values, create a mathematical formula, and apply them to the data visualization viewport.
Another instance of data visualization that I would like to do is to be able to compare a space net/gross area to see if it is greater or less than the proposed area that is required from the programming analysis.

YES!!! This is the logical next step that allows for more detailed graphical spatial analysis!


My example is map data. I have parcels complete with population data. Dividing population by area gives population density.
