Filtering by Region; Bar Visual Example

When working with a very large set of data, it is necessary to quickly access and examine a specific subset of information. Arcadia Enterprise gives you the ability to filter information on all fields of the dataset. This example shows how to use such a filter to limit the result set and visualization to a particular geographic region.

Tip. This demonstration uses the visual previously created in Bar Visuals.

To use this visual to see a bar chart for a region, such as Oceania, follow these steps.

  1. On the Filters shelf, click (down arrow) on the un_region field, then click Pick values from a list.
  2. In the Pick values for un_region modal window, select Oceania, then click Save.

  3. Click Refresh Visual.
  4. Note how the line changed.

    If you hover the mouse over the graph, you can see the tooltip text.
