I am designing monthly and biweekly reports which have many maps and charts.
For the maps, I am using ArcGIS but for the graphs, I am using Excel which I don't think it's suitable and doesn't fit my needs. I can use Illustrator to design my charts but updating and maintaining them is time-consuming
I've looked at several other reports and I am amazed by the consistency of their graphs.
below is two of the examples. Are these using a software to produce these charts or it's completely AI and ID?
