The Location info visualization allows to project geolocated data on a map. The coordinates are represented by a clickable marker with a personalized card on each point.
The data you want to project must contain latitudes and longitudes.
The visualization supports Lambert 93, Lambert II and WGS 84 system projections.
To use your data in a Location Info visualization, the concepts Latitude and Longitude must be associated with the schema of the dataset you want to use.
Then, associate the concept Label with the corresponding column of your dataset.
The values of this column will be used as card titles in your visualisation.
You can combine other concepts such as images, descriptions or web page to better inform your data. These concepts will be used on the marker cards.
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.
2.Create a Location info map
Click on Visualizations then on Configure a visualization.
- Choose the application Location Info
- Enter the title of the visualization
You are redirected to the configuration page of your application with its different sections:
- Action buttons (full screen, integration on a site, capture, ...)
- Configuration menu
The title of the visualization can be changed anytime.
The Informations section shows a summary of the characteristics of your application.
The configuration menu contains four sub-menus: Data, Render, Card and Navigation.
In the Data menu, you choose the dataset you want to use.
Note: If your dataset is not available in this menu, make sure you have updated the concepts Latitude and Longitude in your dataset.
In the Render menu, you can choose the Map Style that suits you the most.
The Color by value defines the column used for the colors of your legend. You can choose the different colors you want to associate with your legend values.
You can also choose Icons by field value to define the column used for the icons in your legend. You can define different icons for each value of one of your columns.
The marker cards display certain concepts automatically. For example, on the European Heritage Days dataset, the concepts Latitude, Longitude, Label, Image, Description and Web page are associated with the corresponding columns.
In the Card menu, you can add Fields to be used in order to display them in each of the marker files.
You can add as much information as you want on a record, however, a card with a lot of information will be too large to display.
The Navigation menu is used to activate geolocation and define the initial position of the map.
When you are satisfied with the preview click on Save to finalize your configuration.
You can add a description at the bottom of the page and make your application public.
You can consult it using the consult or full screen buttons.
