A point layer is required in the map session to enable heat map style. Before you begin, you must select the type of heat map style; only then will the rest of the options become available. However, features like zoom extent and label feature are common for both.

  1. Zoom Extent - This section determines the zoom limits to which map session layer can be extended.
    Note: The session layer does not display if the zoom level is less than the minimum or greater than the maximum value of the zoom extent.
  2. Data Field - It provides a list of all the attributes of a given layer. The Style Type you choose will be applied based on this attribute.
  3. Label Feature - Labels can be added into the session layer by turning on the toggle option and click on ‘+’ , then select the attribute to be used as a label from the pop-up window.
    Tip:

    To display more than one attribute, click Expression button, then attribute can be added to the label by selecting it and click Append button. Changes can be applied once the output is reviewed.

    Bubble Style Type

    1. Data Field - The bubble radius is based on the attribute that you select.

    2. Label - This section under Bubble Map style allows you to modify the text styling that appears when the Label Feature option is enabled by switching toggle button. This includes choices to change Color, Font, Letter Spacing, Transform (text capitalization), Opacity and Alignment.

      For more information on this, see Fixed Styling.

  • Minimum Bubble Radius - Lowest radius value required to represent a bubble.
  • Maximum Bubble Radius - Highest radius value required to represent a bubble.
  • Breaks - Number of color breaks. (Minimum value should be 2)
  • Opacity - Visibility of bubble map.
  • Color - To represent the color of each bubble.

The applied changes after bubble styling are represented on the map session layer.

  • Maximum Intensity - The maximum color concentration of the heat map.
  • Minimum Radius - Lowest radius of influence for each data point.
  • Maximum Radius - Highest radius of influence for each data point.
