Creating a Dashboard

You can construct a MapD Immerse dashboard following these steps:

  1. Start a New Dashboard
  2. Add One or More Charts
  3. Title and Save the Dashboard

Once you save the dashboard, you can share it with other MapD users.

Starting a New Dashboard

Connect to MapD Immerse by pointing a web browser to port 9092 on your MapD Core Database server. When you launch MapD Immerse, the landing page is a list of saved dashboards. You click New Dashboard in the upper right to configure a custom dashboard.

Adding a chart

To add a chart, you click Add Chart, choose a chart type, select a data source, set dimensions and measures, and then click Apply. For more information on creating charts, see creating-a-chart and MapD Immerse Chart Types.

For example, to create a chart using the table ufo_sightings:

  1. Click Add Chart.
  2. Choose a chart type. For example, Bar.
  3. Select the Data Source. For example, ufo_sightings.
  4. Set the Dimension. For example, country.
  5. Set the Measure. For example, COUNT # Records.
  6. Click Apply.

Moving/resizing charts

To move a chart within a dashboard, click the title bar and drag the chart to the new location. If there is already at that location, it moves aside.

To resize the chart, click on the lower right corner of the chart and drag to change the size.

When you add more than one chart to a dashboard, filters on one chart affect all other charts on the dashboard.

For example, the dashboard below shows UFO Sightings in various countries.


If you click the bar for Great Britain (gb) on the “Sightings by Country” chart, the other charts are filtered, as well.
