Filter-Map Widget

The Filter-Map widget allows the user to select locations and filter the report output for reporting widgets (e.g., EZView, Traffic Light, Traffic Light Map, Time Series Chart, Map, Boring Log, and Data Grid) on the dashboard. See the Dashboard Filter Widgets article for more information on filter functionality, limitations, and interactions with other widgets.


The Filter-Map widget is built using LeafletJS and displays facility point features (i.e., locations) that can be selected, with the selections filtering the report output of reporting widgets displayed on the dashboard.


If no session facility is set, polygons denoting facility extents are displayed. Selecting a facility polygon will zoom to and display that facility’s point locations. If a session facility is set on the dashboard, facility point features for that facility will be displayed on the map. Changing the session facility will result in the Filter-Map widget being set to the extent of the new session facility extent and displaying the new session facility point locations.



Widget Interface


The Filter-Map widget has the following functions in the user interface:

Zoom In and Zoom Out – Click either the Zoom In (Ent-Map_Zoom_In-Icon) or Zoom Out (Ent-Map_Zoom_Out-Icon) buttons to view the page as needed. These buttons are located on the top-left of the widget. Users can also zoom in and out by using the scroll button on the mouse.

Select Locations – Click the Select Locations Ent-Select_Locations-Icon button to choose multiple locations that will be used to filter the dashboard. Click the left mouse button and drag to draw a line around one or more facility points. The line will automatically close when the mouse drag event stops. The selected points will result in filterable widgets only displaying data associated with the selected facility points. The button will only be displayed when facility point features are displayed on the map.

Clear – Click the Clear Ent-Search_Reset_Icon button to clear all selected features, clearing the filter. The button will only be displayed when facility point features are displayed on the map.



Interaction with Other Widgets and Filters


To select facility location points, either click on an individual facility location or click the Select Locations button to choose multiple locations. Each selected point will be highlighted with an orange square and will result in filterable widgets on the baseboard only displaying report results that match the locations selected in the Filter-Map widget.


Example with Data Grid Widget


In this example, a facility layer is displayed in the Filter-Map widget and a user report based on the same facility is displayed in the Data Grid widget.


Facility locations “B-45” and “B-47” were selected in the Filter-Map widget and are highlighted with orange boxes. The report displayed on the Data Grid widget has been filtered by the selection made in the Filter-Map widget and only the “B-45” and “B-47” report locations are displayed.
