Views

View is a visualization of certain theme using a set of related indicators and groups of objects (markers or areas) displayed on a map. View also contains the definition of filters.

It is linked to dashboards and marker selectors. Each view references exactly one dashboard and exactly one marker selector.

See views and filters in action in the Features Catalog for Developers project. 

Syntax

This is the Catchment Area view of the Retail Solution Demo project.

You can see that the view contains a fitting description and title. It is linked with its dashboard and a marker selector. It also contains a number of filters, defined in the filterGroup array. At the end, in the mapOptions object, various map window settings - such as map center, or zoom limits can be defined.

Example of a view with the variables filter type. This filter allows you to set unique variables used in metrics. In this example, it allows you to tweak different aspects of some index.

To configure defaultValues for the filter first copy the filter to defaultActiveFilters array and then add defaultValues to this copy.

Example of a indicator filter with defaultValues set

Example of a indicator filter with defaultValues set
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 { "type": "indicator", "indicator": "/rest/projects/$projectId/md/indicators?name=turnover_indicator", "defaultValues": { "values": [ 10000.0, 500000.0 ], "granularity": "/rest/projects/$projectId/md/datasets?name=ward" } }

Default values are also available for indicator filter type. The values array must contain exactly two values with respect to the data type of the actual indicator, as well as the default granularity setting.

Indicator filter allows you to filter areas based on the values of various indicators present in the view's dashboard.

They are located in the Filters  tool, as well as all other filters (except globalDate).

Default values can be set in the defaultValues object. And since indicator filters can have different results on different granularities, default granularity can be set as well.

Relative date filters

Relative date filters allow you to create filters with sliding date values, like last week, previous month or the first 90 days of a year.

They consist of three functions:

  • function_today - always returns today's date

  • function_date_trunc - truncates a date to a beginning of an interval (= first day of a week, month, etc.)

    • supported intervals: day, week, month, quarter, year

  • function_interval - generates a date interval, which can later be added or subtracted from a date

Date range

Definition syntax

Date range

Definition syntax

the day before 30 days

function_today − function_interval(30, day)

the beginning of the current week

function_date_trunc(today, week)​

​the beginning of last week

function_date_trunc(today, week)​ − function_interval(1, week)

the day before two months

function_today − function_interval(2, month)

the ending of the last month

function_date_trunc(today, month)​ − function_interval(1, day)

By combining these functions into startDate and endDate, you are able to create the desired intervals. Let's have a look at an example:

Last 30 days

This interval spans last 30 days since today. It does not respect the boundaries of a calendar month.

Relative date filter of the last 30 days
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 "defaultValues": { "startDate": { "function": { "type": "function_minus", "content": [ { "type": "function_today" }, { "type": "function_interval", "content": [ { "type": "number", "value": 30 } ], "options": { "interval": "day" } } ] } }, "endDate": { "function": { "type": "function_today" } } }

This month

This interval starts at the 1st of the current month and ends today.

Relative date filter of this month
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 "defaultValues": { "startDate": { "function": { "type": "function_date_trunc", "content": [ { "type": "function_today" } ], "options": { "interval": "month" } } }, "endDate": { "function": { "type": "function_today" } } }

Previous year

This interval spans all days of the previous year. If it's the New Year's Eve of 2017, the whole year 2016 will be selected. If it's the New Year's Day of 2018, the whole year 2017 will be selected.

Relative date filter of the previous year
