Heat Map is used to visually represent the density or intensity of data on a map. Heat map uses a color gradient typically ranging from cooler colors (like red or cyan) to warmer colors (like blue or green) to indicate the level of activity or concentration of an attribute in an area. Where the cooler colors represent lower values, while the warmer colors represent higher values. A heat map is a powerful tool for visually analyzing spatial information, and providing valuable insights into the characteristics and trends within a geographic region.
Design a Heat Map
To add a Heat 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 Heat Map scenario onto the dashboard designer area.
Bind Dataset to the Heat Map
With the heat map scenario selected, navigate to the Data Binding panel and select a dataset from the 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 or Latitude and Longitude data containers. Drag and drop other appropriate fields in the Heat Color (is a value and is mandatory), Tooltip, and Drill Down Path data fields as well. See the help article on the Drill Down feature for more information on drilling down into hierarchical data.
Format Data Attributes
You can perform various operations to format the data attributes on a bubble 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 the Bubble Map scenario,
Aggregation Method: Use the Aggregation Method option to display a summarized value by aggregating multiple data attribute values. Aggregation Method supports Sum, Average, Min, Max, Count, and Distinct Count methods. See the Aggregation Method help topic for more information.
Quick Functions: Use the Quick Functions option to highlight key indicators in your scenario by applying powerful calculation on measures. Quick Functions in KPI Kanban support Ranking Calculation, Percentile Calculation, Running Calculation, Moving Calculation, and Original Value. See the Quick Functions help article 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.
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.
You can customize the appearance of a Heat 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 area bubbles' zoom level, longitude, and latitude. When the By Longitude & Latitude option is selected the Zoom Level, Longitude, and Latitude properties will appear in the Inspector Panel as described below,
HEAT MAP STYLE
Select a heat map color gradient using the Heat Color property.
When an item in the heat map is selected, a circle will display on the outer boundary of the selected item. Use the Selection Color property to set the color of the circle.
Set the heat size radius using the Heat Size property. The value of the Heat Size varies from 0 to 100. The larger the number, the bigger the radius of the heat map.
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.
Visible Menu Items
Select the filtering and sorting options you wish to display on the map scenario from the dropdown.
To pin the annotation to the map scenario, set this property to True. By default, this property is set as False.
Context Menu Actions
Select multiple Context Menu Options from the dropdown. Context Menu Options include - Keep, Exclude, Drill Down, Jump, and Add Data Monitoring.
Select None, Keep, Exclude, or Jump option from the dropdown to perform an action on click.
To allow single selection of map items, set this property to True. By default, this property is set to *False.
Show Data Label
To display data labels set the Show Data Label property to True. On enabling the Show Data Labels property Show Location, Show Measure, Display Mode, and Data Label Font Setting properties appear in the Inspector Panel. By default, the value of the Show Data Label property is set to False.
To disable the region or latitude and longitude display on the map, set the Show Location property to False. By default, the value of the Show Location property is set as True.
To disable the measure of the heat map value, set the Show Measure property to False. By default, the value of the Show Measure property is set as True.
Select an option from the dropdown to display the data labels. Smart option displays the maximum value and the All option displays all data labels in the region.
Data Label Font Setting
Set the font family, font size, font color, font weight, and font style of the data labels using this property.
