Scatter Layer shows the data information corresponding to the geographic location in the form of dots.

Style

  • Show: Select the Show check box to show the scatter layer. Clear the check box to hide the scatter layer.
  • Height: Drag the slider or enter a number manually to set the height of the scatter layer from the surface of the globe.
  • Pulse Speed: Drag the slider or enter a number manually to set the flickering speed of the dots in the scatter layer.
  • Opacity: Drag the slider or enter a number manually to set the opacity of the scatter layer. The value is from 0 to 1.
  • Data Classification: You can use the property to classify data into multiple grades based on the values of the value properties in the data source. The value is from 2 to 7 (integer). Drag the slider or enter a number manually to specify the number of data grades to classify. The property helps you avoid the issue of rendering that is caused by the large difference between the minimum and the maximum values of the value properties.
  • Dot Size (Small To Large): Click the plus (+) sign or the trash can icon to add or delete a type.
    • Value: Enter a number manually or click the plus (+) /minus (-) sign to specify the size of the dot corresponding to the type.
      Notice The values of the property can be considered as elements of an array. Used in combination with Data Classification, the values increase with the ordinals of types. For example, if the value of Type 1 is set to 10, then the size of a dot with a value of 0 to 10 in the data source is shown as the size a dot with a value of 10. If the value of Type 2 is set to 20, then the size of a dot with a value of 11 to 20 is shown as the size of a dot with a value of 20. Assuming that the value of Data Classification is set to 3, the size of a dot with a value greater than 20 is shown as the size of a dot with the value of Type 3.
  • Default Color: For more information about how to modify the default color, see Color selector.
    Note If the type property of a dot in the data source is not contained in the Scatter Type pane, then the default color is used for rendering the dot.


  • Scatter Type: Click the plus (+) sign or the trash can icon to add or delete a type.
    • type: The values of the type properties for each scatter type are a subset of the values of the type properties that are specified for each dot in the data source.
    • Color: For more information about how to modify the color for a scatter type, see Color selector.
      Note The values of the property can be considered as elements of an array. You can configure colors for scatter types. A color is rendered for a dot based on its type property specified in the data source. If the type property of a dot in the data source is not contained in the Scatter Type pane, then the default color is used for rendering the dot.


Data

  • Ing: The longitude of a dot.
  • lat: The latitude of a dot.
  • type: The type of a dot. It specifies the color of the dot corresponding to the scatter type property in the Style pane.
  • value: The value of a dot. It determines the size of a dot in combination with the Dot Size property in the Style pane.
