Flow Line Map
Flow Line map is an OpenStreetMap (OSM) visualization technique used to represent the movement of objects, phenomena, or any other type of flow across geographic areas. Flow line map helps in understanding the patterns and intensity of movement in a region.
In a flow line map, the flow of movement is typically depicted using arrows or lines connecting different regions. The intensity or thickness of the flow lines corresponds to the magnitude of the flow. Flow line maps are crucial in understanding spatial movement patterns. Flow line maps enable you to gain insights into the dynamics of movement, identify bottlenecks, plan infrastructure improvements, and optimization, and make informed decisions.
Design a Flow Line Map
To add a Flow Line Map to your dashboard scenario, switch to the Resource Portal or Document Portal and follow the below instructions,
Use the + (create button) and click the Create Dashboard option to access the dashboard designer.
Navigate to the Data Visualization tools and drag and drop the Flow Line Map scenario onto the dashboard designer area.
Bind Dataset to the Flow Line Map
With the flow line map scenario selected, navigate to the Data Binding panel and select a dataset from the Choose Dataset dropdown to bind to the scenario. When the dataset loads successfully, the data binding panel automatically expands and displays the data attributes available for data binding. Drag and drop the appropriate data fields in the Region data container or the Latitude and Longitude data containers. Drag and drop other appropriate fields in the To Location, To Latitude, To Longitude, Line Color, Line Width, Bubble Size, and Tooltip data fields as well.
Format Data Attributes
You can perform various operations to format the data attributes on a flow line map and control the display of data. Use the settings icon in the data field containers to format the data attributes. The following operations are included in a Flow Line Map scenario,
Aggregation Method: Use the Aggregation Method option to display a summarized value by aggregating multiple values of a data attribute. Aggregation Method supports Sum, Average, Min, Max, Count, and Distinct Count methods. See the Aggregation Method help topic for more information.
Display Unit: Use the Display Unit option to display units of measure and eliminate ambiguity. See the Modify Display Unit help article for more information.
Filter: The Filter option displays relevant data in your chart scenario. See the Filter Data help article for more information.
Rename: Use the Rename option to change the name of a data attribute to make it comprehensible and meaningful. See the Rename a Data Attribute help article for more information.
Remove: Use the Remove option to remove a data attribute from the chart scenario.
Wyn Dashboards scenarios support rich data analysis and exploration capabilities to help you analyze massive amounts of information and make data-driven decisions. Following analysis operations are available in the Action Bar corresponding to each scenario in the designer,
Filter: To filter out relevant data in your chart scenario. See the Filter Data help article, for information on using the filter options in a dashboard scenario.
Sort: To arrange the chart data in a more meaningful order. See the Sort help article for information on using the sort options in a dashboard scenario.
Conditional Visualization: To filter, compare, and rant the data in a dashboard scenario. See the Conditional Visualization help article for information on using various visualization options.
Data Binding: To modify the data field binding, click this option. Data Binding window will appear as a pop-out, modify the Values and Category. You can also change the scenario type from the container panel on the top of the pop-out.
Conditional Format: To highlight specific values or emphasize specific information. See the Conditional Formatting help article for information on using various formatting options.
Focus: To expand the Kanban scenario to full screen, use this option.
Export: To export the scenario in the Kanban scenario as a PNG image, SVG image, or Excel format, click the export icon and choose the appropriate option.
You can customize the appearance of the Flow Line Map scenario using the Inspector Panel properties on the right side of the dashboard designer window, listed and described in the following tables,
Show Base Map
To enable or disable the reference map use the Show Base Map property. In Wyn Enterprise, Mapbox GIS is used as a base map. By default, the value of this property is set to True.
Select an option from the dropdown,
Auto: Automatically controls the map range that displays all data points.
By Area: Displays the area selector on the map. When you click on a bubble, the map boundary range will display the selected area bubble.
By Longitude & Latitude: You can manually set the zoom level, longitude, and latitude of the area bubbles. When the By Longitude & Latitude option is selected the Zoom Level, Longitude, and Latitude options will appear in the Inspector Panel.
FLOW LINE STYLE
Select a fill mode of the flow lines using the dropdown. Available values in the dropdown - Continuous, Grouped.
Select a fill color from the color gradient. You can choose 2 color fills or 3 color fills from the color gradient for the flow lines.
Set the range of the thickness of the flow lines. Larger the the thickness, the larger the width of the flow line.
To disable the animation of the flow lines, set the Animation property to False. By default, the value of the Animation property is set to True.
Set the duration of the animation of the flow lines ranging from 0 to 60 seconds.
To disable the display of bubbles at the corners of the flow lines, set the Show Bubble property to False. By default, the value of the Show Bubble property is set as True.
Select the color of the bubbles using the Color property.
Set the size of the bubbles for the flow line map ranging between 2 to 60.
Select the shape of the bubbles from the dropdown.
Add a name to the map scenario using this property.
To disable the filtered data throughout the dashboard, set this property to False. Cross filters provide a simplified and deeper analysis of what you want to observe. By default, the value of the Cross Filter property is set to True.
To create a shortcut to another dashboard scenario, report, or URL use this property. See the Jump To help article for more information.
Select None, Polling, or Real Time option from the dropdown to set the refresh rate of the map data. Dropdown options are described below,
- None: Select None to disable auto-refresh of the map data.
- Polling: Select Polling to enable auto refresh and set an interval to refresh map data in the Refresh Interval property.
- Real Time: Select Real-time to display the data in real-time.
