Create filters from your map to focus in on just the data you want. Maps provides three ways to create filters:
Filter dashboard by map boundsedit
To filter your dashboard by your map bounds as you pan and zoom your map:
- Open the main menu, and then click Dashboard.
- Select your dashboard from the list or click Create dashboard.
- If your dashboard does not have a map, add a map panel.
- Click the gear icon to open the map panel menu.
- Select More to view all panel options.
- Select Filter dashboard by map bounds.
- Select the checkbox for your map panel.
A spatial filter narrows search results to documents that either intersect with, are within, or do not intersect with the specified geometry.
You can create spatial filters in two ways:
- Click the tool icon , and then draw a shape, bounding box, or distance on the map to define the spatial filter.
- Click Filter by geometry in a locked tooltip, and then use the feature’s geometry for the spatial filter.
Spatial filters have the following properties:
- Geometry label enables you to provide a meaningful name for your spatial filter.
- Spatial relation determines the spatial relation operator to use at search time.
- Action specifies whether to apply the filter to the current view or to a drilldown action. Only available when the map is a panel in a dashboard with drilldowns.
A phrase filter narrows search results to documents that contain the specified text. You can create a phrase filter by clicking the plus icon in a locked tooltip. If the map is a dashboard panel with drilldowns, you can apply a phrase filter to a drilldown by selecting the drilldown action.
