This topic describes how to configure an animated bubbles layer (a type of data point layer) to display data across geographical locations on a map.

Prerequisites

The animation bubbles layer widget is added to the basic flat map and the widget parameters are set. For more information, see Map container.

Configure the configuration plane



  • Animation Type: Set the type of animation for the bubbles. Available types are Breath and Fading.
  • Animation Range: Drag the slider or enter a value to set the size range of the bubbles. This parameter setting takes effect only if you set Animation Type to Breath.
  • Animation Speed: Drag the slider or enter a value to set the animation speed of the bubbles.
  • Color Gradient Range: Drag the slider or enter a value to set the maximum color depth of the bubbles. If you set the fading Animation Type, the bubble color fades from the set color depth to transparency.
  • Max Bubble Size: Drag the slider or enter a value to set the maximum bubble size that indicates the maximum value specified by the value field in the data plane.
  • Min Bubble Size: Drag the slider or enter a value to set the minimum bubble size that indicates the minimum value specified by the value field in the data plane.
  • Bubble Type: Click + or the Trash Can icon to add or remove a bubble type. Bubbles of one type share the same bubble style and color.
    • Style: Select a bubble style from the drop-down list. Seven bubble styles are available.
    • Type Filter Value: Set the bubble type value to filter bubbles. Then, you can set the same Style and Color for the filtered type of bubbles.
      Note The type of each bubble is specified by the type field of this bubble in the data plane.
