Getting started with Geolytics

A 3-minute video on how to create a location layer.

Location layer is the most common type of maps and is also very often the starting point for geographical data analysis.

With Geolytics, you can put multiple locations on the map. You can add a location manually or you can upload multiple locations using the Location Layer Excel upload template with sample data.

Once a location layer is added, there are a few things you can do at layer level, which is shown on the menu which will show up when the icon more_vert next to the layer name is clicked.

You can also add multiple location layers, with each layer a different group of locations. You can also make the icons of each layer different so that they are easily differentiated from each other on the map.

From location layer, you can switch easily among location view, heatmap view and cluster view.

However, due to user experience, location view will be disabled when number of locations exceeds 3000.

Following information is required by the upload template:

1NameName of the location.Optional.
2AddressAddress of the location..Optional.
3Postal CodePostal code of the location.Optional.
4CountryCountry of the location.Required. If this is not filled, Geolytics will give error message saying that address info is missing.
5LatitudeSometimes referred as Lat, this is the latitude of the location. Optional. Only required when number of records per upload is more than 100.
6LongitudeSometimes referred as Lng, this is the longitude of the location. Optional. Only required when number of records per upload is more than 100.
7weightWeight of the location. This is used when heatmap view is on or when doing auto scaling of the location icons. Optional.
