Geo-based visualizations

The map displays data points for the area of the map you have selected. When you change the view of the map by zooming in or out, or panning to a different part of the map, the property statistics and point count update dynamically. These values are updated based upon the data points that are visible on the map.

By enabling data layers, you can add points of interest, including geofences to the map too.

If you reset the filters, this does not change the view of the map; see Filtering your dataset for more information.

Layered data

When you zoom into an area of the map, for example from city level to street level, the Data Explorer refreshes the view of the map, and provides you with an estimate of the statistics as soon as possible, displaying a sample of the most relevant data points. These points are then progressively refined over time, to provide you with a more complete representation of the data points in the selected geographical area. This progressive refinement of the visualization and statistics enables the Data Explorer to be responsive, providing you with insights across your whole dataset, regardless of the level of detail or number of data points included.

However, say you have applied a set of filters that you know excludes all the data points that exist within the current bounding box (for example, you have filtered out the country that is onscreen). Unexpectedly, the point count shows a small number of points are present, rather than zero. This happens because the Data Explorer does not have your insights, and calculates that there may be points in this area, which results in a non-zero number being shown as the most likely count.
