Point map with clusters
A point map with clusters differs from a regular point map in clustering adjacent points. On the map, a cluster is represented as a donut chart with the number of points displayed in the center.
The behavior of points varies depending on the map scale:
- When scaling down, points are clustered.
- When scaling up, the distance between points increases and a cluster is automatically split into smaller clusters and/or individual points.
If a map with the selected scale only contains a single point, it's not clustered. In this case, instead of a donut chart, you'll see a point just like in a regular scatter chart.
Clustering on a map improves visualization when there is a large number of points. For example, if you want to show the location of all stores in a city on a map with clustering, points on the map will not overlap.
Sections in the wizard
- The Point size, Tooltips, and Signatures sections only apply to individual points.
- The Color section only lets you add a dimension.
in the wizard
|Points with clusters (Geopoints)||Measure with the type Geopoint.|
|Point size||Measure. Sets a point size depending on the measure value.|
|Colors||Dimension. Affects the intensity of point fill.|
|Signatures||Measure. Displayed as text on a point. When used, point size control is blocked.|
|Tooltips||Dimension or measure. A tooltip that appears when you hover over a point.|
|Layer filters||Dimension or measure. Used as a filter for the current layer.|
|Filters||Dimension or measure. Used as a filter for the entire chart.|
Creating a point map with clusters
- On the Yandex DataLens home page, click Create chart.
- Under Dataset, select a dataset for visualization. If you do not have a dataset, create one.
- Select the Map chart type.
- Select the Points with clusters (Geopoints) layer type.
- Drag a dimension with the Geopoint type from the dataset to the layer type selection section.
- Set the size of the points displayed on the point map. Drag a measure to the Point size section or click in the line with the section name.
- Color the points on the map. Drag a dimension to the Color section.
- Add tooltips to show the dimension and measure values when hovering over a point.
You can also:
- Add, rename, and delete a layer.
- Reorder the layers within a layer type.
- Apply a filter to the whole chart or one layer.
- Use color palettes corresponding to visualization aims and objectives.
