Viewing nested maps and comparing KPIs

Map charts display nested maps as drill-down maps. You can drill down to up to three map-levels only. Hover over individual data points on the Map chart to view their key performance indicators (KPI). Up to five KPIs can be displayed for each data point. You must specify these KPIs when you set chart properties. If you want to view and compare a KPI for multiple data points on the chart, then you must also specify such common KPI in the chart properties.

About this task

To view a single tooltip for multiple data points on the Map chart, select an area by drawing a polygon over the chart. Hover the pointer over the polygon to view the tooltip. A common tooltip for the polygon shows a KPI value for each data point that is contained within the polygon. For multiple data points, a paginated tooltip is displayed. If a chart contains a single data point, then you cannot draw a polygon on such a chart.

Procedure

Viewing nested maps

  • To view nested maps, complete the following steps:
    1. Log in to the Engine.

      If a menu with multiple category nodes and multiple dashboard nodes is published, then each category node is displayed separately on the menu bar.

    2. To view a dashboard that belongs to a category node, click the category node, and then click the dashboard node that you want to view.

      The dashboard with all its widgets is displayed.

    3. To open a nested map, click a data point on the Map chart.

      If a nested map is available, then it is displayed. You can drill down to up to three map-levels only.

    4. To go back to the parent map, you must either refresh the dashboard or click the Back Back button.

Selecting a map area to view KPI for multiple data points

  • To select an area on the Map chart to compare a KPI for multiple data points, complete the following steps:
    1. Click the Select an Area Select an Area icon, and click anywhere on the chart.

      The Select an Area icon is highlighted and a highlighted circle is displayed on the chart.

    2. Start from the circle and drag the cursor over data points that you want to include in the polygon.
    3. After all the required data points are covered by the polygon either double-click to complete the polygon or drag the cursor back to the starting point on the circle to end the polygon.

      The polygon is created. Ensure that the polygon encompasses all the data points for which you want to compare a single KPI.

    4. Hover the pointer over the polygon to view a single tooltip that displays a KPI for each of the data points within the polygon. If the polygon contains multiple data points, then the tooltip is paginated.

      For example, if a polygon contains three data points, then the tooltip displays three KPIs. One for each data point. This KPI is a common KPI that you specified while setting the chart properties.

      For more information about the common KPI, see Setting properties for Map chart.

      Note:
      • If you click any legend, then the polygon is removed. If the legend is contained within the polygon, then both the polygon and that data point are removed from the chart. The remaining data points that were present in the polygon appear gray.
      • At times, the tooltip appears cropped. To view the complete tooltip, maximize the widget.
      • On mobile devices, double tap the tooltip to close it.
