Geospatial Filters

Using the Draw tool, you can create boundaries on the map and apply them as Filters. These boundaries are responsive, updating filters and charts as they are moved around the map.

Drawing Boundaries

Follow these steps to create a boundary:

1. Click the polygon icon on the top right corner of the map to open the drawing panel.

2. Select Polygon or Rectangle, then begin drawing on the map.

  • Polygon: Click on the map to add vertices. Click on the first vertex to close the shape.
  • Rectangle: Click and drag to adjust the shape of the rectangle. Release the mouse button to close the shape.

Alternatively, you can click on any geometry on the map, then click Select to draw a boundary around the polygon, H3 tile, or other GeoJSON feature.

3. Click a shape to select it, then right-click to expand the options menu.

You are presented with three options:

Filter Layers

Click Filter Layers then choose a layer to filter its data points to only those contained in the shape.

Filter Polygons

You can filter Polygon layers by creating a geospatial boundary. Only polygons that have centroids within the boundary will be displayed.

Creating Several Filters

Multiple geospatial boundaries can be drawn on the same map to filter the map in an AND operation.

Note: If the map's geospatial filters do not share a common area, no data will be displayed.

Copy Geometry

Click Copy to copy the geometry of the boundary feature as a GeoJSON string. The geometry is copied to your clipboard, allowing you to paste it into any text editor.

Delete

Click Delete to delete the selected geometry.

Note: This function only deletes the drawn geometry. This does not delete any layers or data within the shape.
