You can apply filters to your map to further analyze the data. Filters allow you to dig deep into your data. For example you can filter by customers in a specific area with a certain income.

There are three types of filter.

  • Numerical
  • Text
  • Date

Numerical Filters

By default the Table will be collapsed in the bottom right corner of the screen as seen below.

Click on the double arrows to expand it.

Select the dataset you wish to filter from the Viewing drop down.

  • Select the Sort/Filter button at the top of the column you wish to filter.

This will open the Filter window beside the table.

  • Use the slider to change the value
  • Hover over the values to enter new values for the filter manually.
  • Click on the X icon to remove the filter.

Text Filters

If the Column is a text field and has less than 50 distinct values then the filter window will appear as below. This will allow you to choose one or more values.

  • Click on All to remove or add all results to the map.
  • Click on one or more choices to add or remove them from the map.
  • Click on the X icon to remove the filter.

If the Column is a text field and has more than 50 distinct values then the filter window will appear as below.

  • Click on the drop down and select the criteria you want and enter the appropriate value in the text box.
  • Click on the + to add another filter or click on the – to remove a filter.
  • Click on the X icon to remove the filter.

Date Filters

  • You can filter based on date values and date ranges. Make sure that the data has been imported as a date at the the add data stage.
  • You can filter data directly from the legend by clicking on the eye icon beside each range.
  • You can filter from the table by clicking on the filter icon at the top right of the date column.
  • Use the From and To date to specify the start and end date of the data you want to view. 

Filter from Legend 

  • You can visually filter your data from the legend.
  • To do this click on the eye icon next to the cohort you want to make invisible 
  • If you want to modify the ranges in the legend go to styling and update the ranges.

 Auto Zoom

When you apply a filter you can choose a specific Zoom setting. Click on the Filter Zoom icon in the top of the Filter window.

  • No Zoom when filter applied – this is the default setting. This means that when you apply a filter the map will not Zoom to the filtered data.
  • Auto Zoom when filter applied. This means that when you apply a filter the map will auto zoom to that data. Once you remove the filter the Map will auto zoom back to the full extents of the data.

Filter Lock

You can apply a lock to a filter.

  • When you share a map with a locked filter the filter will not be visible on the shared map and the user will not be able to remove it. This allows you to share subsets of data with members of your team.
  • Only the person who applies a filter lock will know it is there and only they can remove it.
