Arc Layer

Arc layers draw an arc between two points. They’re useful for visualizing the distance between two points as well as comparing distances in 3D.

Note that arc layers don’t show routes between points, but simply the distance between the two points. The tallest arc represents the greatest distance.

To draw arcs you can use two ways - create arc layer from points or create arc layer from points and neighbors.

Create Arc layer from points

To create arc layer from points select the Points option inside arc layer settings.

Required columns to create an arc layer from points: source latitude and longitude, and target latitude and longitude columns. If the dataset has hex columns, you can use the source and target hex columns.

Create Arc layer from points and neighbors

To create arc layer from points and neighbors select the 'Points and Neighbors' option inside arc layer settings.

Required columns to create an arc layer from points and neighbors: source latitude and longitude columns as well as the neighbors geo column. If the dataset has hex columns, you can use the source and target hex columns as well as the neighbors geo column.
