How can we filter to different areas?

Using the legend option in the Routes Analysis console

In Locale, the users can filter to different areas using the legend. The legend is used to understand the distribution and density of any metric in the map.

🧭 How do I use the legend?

The legend is represented by a sliding bar. The user can move it in both directions to filter to the desired areas.

For example:

  • If you want to filter to the areas with revenue between 8 and 17, drag the handles around the legend and place it between the said numbers.

  • If you want to see areas with more than 37 delayed shipments, drag the left handle to 37 and the right handle to the right end.

Only the regions with these numbers will be highlighted on the map after you do this. It is depicted by the visual down below.


🌈 Can I change the legend colors?

No, you cannot change the color scheme in the Routes section. However, since the Origins and Destinations sections function as heatmaps essentially, you can change the color scheme there. In order to change the color scheme there:

  • Click on the Legend options button

  • Once the drop-down menu appears, click on the legend colors option

  • You can choose between multiple color schemes.

βž• Can I add more ranges to filter my areas?

Yes, you can do so with the bucket size option. Bucketing basically refers to the transformation of any features with numerical values into categorical features, using a set of thresholds.

The users can access various ranges by changing the bucket size. They can choose from five bucketing ranges: 2, 4, 5, 10 and 20. Depending on the option you choose, your data is reflected in as many ranges based on the percentile values.

For example,

  • If the user has chosen 2 as their bucketing size, you will be able to see two different ranges, from 0 to 50th percentile and from 50th to 100th percentile.

  • If the user has chosen 5 as their bucketing size, they will be able to see 5 different ranges, 0th to 20th, 20th to 40th, 40th to 60th, 60th to 80th and 80th to 100th percentiles.

Note: Bucketing is done based on percentiles in Locale.
