Geo Shapes

The Geo Shapes visualization display geometric data on a map. It is thus possible to visualize data such as the zones of the local urbanization plan or energy networks.
An example is the map of the Angers Loire M├ętropole LUP zones.
You can click on each zone to get more details and click on a color in the legend to filter by zone type.


To configure a Geo Shapes visualization, your active account contains at least one dataset with the concept GeoJSON geometry to be able to project your data on the map.

Once you updated your data schema, you can preview your data using the generic map button. This allows to verify that your data is correctly projected on a map.
