Configure the Map

One of the first items (gadgets) to add to a Dashboard is the “map gadget.”  Pick the map gadget from the drop down list (the icon with the + symbol). 

Next, choose which web map to use in the Dashboard.  NOTE:  Multiple map gadgets can be used in a single Dashboard.

Various options can be configured.

  • Settings – (such as the “widgets” to show on the map, such as search, zoom in/out, legend, layers, etc).
  • General – Title and title color changes
  • Map actions – set this section up to affect other gadgets when the map changes (e.g. a counter changes when the map zooms in/out)
  • Layer actions – layer actions such as filtering and zoom can be changed in this setting.

The video below shows some of the options shown above with some commentary.
