As part of the KxDashboard 2.0.3 release, we have now added a new geographical map components providing an interactive data visualization tool that enables non-technical and power users to utilize and provide insight into their data. The map provides a simple and easy to use mechanism to query, transform, share and present live data.
KxDashboards Map Component with heatmap
The map components allow user to create visually appealing, engaging, and performant geographic maps. Utilizing WebGL technologies the maps leverage hardware acceleration to render quickly and smoothly (with minimal lag). This is particularly noticeable with large datasets.
What are the use cases ?
Visualizing and animating geographic data
No requirement for external access to the internet or external APIs
Adding points, circles, lines, and popups to maps programmatically
Display and interacting with large quantities of data on a map
Querying and filtering features on a map
Dynamically displaying and styling custom client-side data on a map.
Annotating polygons and lines on geographic data
Visualizing streaming and moving data geographically
Layering multiple layers of data on top of each other
Performance and big data
Our new map component is built with performance in mind. Utilizing WebGL technology , it leverages hardware acceleration to render maps quickly and smoothly. This performance advantage is particularly noticeable when dealing with large datasets or complex map interactions, ensuring users won't experience lag or delay while exploring their data
We also implement data driven style to help reduce any performance impacts when loading our maps
Additional, we have implemented an offline map mode, which storage the map assets on the local server. These assets are optimized to help improve performance. This has the additional benefit of not requiring any external APIs to get map information
Dynamic and live data Visualization
Our component supports real-time/static/playback data, making it an excellent choice for applications that require dynamic visualizations.
Examples of this may include:
Shipping/ Aero / vehicle patterns analysis
Monitoring weather patterns
Analyzing geographical social media trends
Real estate and property management
Urban planning and analysis
Location bases services such as ride sharing, food delivery
Tourism and travel applications
Custom Styling and tailoring visuals.
Our component offers a rich feature set for customizing map properties
