Our goal is to create, manage and publish highly customisable info graphics or statistics within Sophora. The actual generation of the graphics is done by Maongo, a high-class Authoring Framework for the creation of web or television media. Maongo is a product of our partner 4=1. Hence the graphics are generated, they are treated like normal Sophora image documents. Thus they integrate seamlessly into the work flow of Sophora. For example the graphics can easily be used as a teaser or as a paragraph image of a story.
