Filtering 2: bar chart by region

When working with a very large set of data, it is necessary to quickly access and examine a specific subset of information. CDP Data Visualization gives you the ability to filter information on all fields of the dataset.

This example shows how to use such a filter to limit the result set and visualization to a particular geographic region. It uses the visual previously created in Bars. Clone it and make the changes to the duplicate visual.

To use this visual to see a bar chart for a region, such as Oceania, follow these steps:

  1. Add the field un-region to the Filters shelf, and set its value to Oceania:
    1. Click the field on the shelf of the visual to open the FIELD PROPERTIES menu.
    2. Click Select values.
    3. In the Filter for un_region modal window, select Oceania and click APPLY.
    The Bars visual changed to show only the countries in the Oceania UN Region.
  3. Remove un_region from the Colors shelf, and replace it with the country field.
  5. Rename the visual.
  6. At the top left corner of the Dashboard Designer, click SAVE.
