How is this different from によると?

As I understand it, this one sets a viewpoint or position for observing something, whereas によると specifies a source for information.

Does that help at all?

So after reading your reply and looking at the examples, によると is more for people (ie: According to John...) and this one is more for everything else?

The によると can be other sources: for example, a newspaper, tv, a weather report, the radio, an ad flyer. 'According to' is a very good way to think of it. You are restating information/report that you got from that source.

のうえで can also mean this and function in the same way. However, it can *also* refer to a standpoint from which to consider something.

のうえで < As far as class is concerned (Considering class...)

So I'd say that によると is the same as *one* of the meanings of のうえで.
