How to filter data just of specific object.

Why is it useful?

It is possible to use any object (polygon, marker, dot) as a filter. It allows you to explore data just for that selected object.


  • to explore just the data of some higher administrative units and to drill down to smaller administrative units contained in the superfluous one

  • to further analyze data just in the catchment area of some branch/shop/ATM represented as a marker on the map

How does it work?

Select any object on the map and then click on the icon next to Filters to display just the data linked to this object and to add the object to filters. You can send as many objects as you need to filters using shift and click.

In the Filters panel, you can adjust the settings of the object filter, disable it or reset it to default. 

When you switch to a different View or get to the Project page, the object filter resets and disappears from the Filters panel.
