Hi everyone.
I'm not a GIS advanced user, so I'm not sure if that is even possible, but let's give it a try:

I'm working on a project to build a user-friendly interface in which the user would click on a road and the map would automatically display some tables or charts summarizing some information.

For example, a Roads layer would be connected to an excel spreadsheet. The user would input information about land use in the spreadsheet, who would calculate the number of lanes needed for the road and automatically display on the map.

Ideally, it would look something like this:

I would appreciate any comments.
