What’s New in M.App Analyzer Suite

What’s New in M.App Analyzer Suite

 

Based on your feedback and the wide array of requests from the Analyzer Smart M.App community, we are responding to this demand with another major release of the M.App Analyzer Suite of Smart M.Apps (Incident Analyzer, Area Analyzer, Network Analyzer, Analyzer Viewer, and Feature Analyzer for M.App Enterprise).

 

Here are highlights of the many new features in M.App Analyzer Suite.

 

Gauge Chart Min/Max Support

Minimum and Maximum values can be used when defining a Gauge chart. When using two or more Gauge charts within a view, each Gauge chart can display measures equally across multiple charts. In the example below, the Minimum (0) and Maximum (10) values were used to display water storage changes across three years. In this example, the reader can quickly deduce the relative changes from one year to the next.

Number Display Chart

Administrators can now create Number Display charts. Use this chart to display simple, read-only reports. For example, configure a Number Display chart to display the number of filtered features by the total number of features. Or when used in tandem with a measure, the chart can report averages or sums.

 

You can use HTML to add advanced styles to these reports – if you can dream it up in HTML it can be used within this chart. In the example below, the report contains:

  • several hyperlinks
  • an image
  • values about churches
    • number of filtered churches
    • average number of people attending the churches
    • total number of people attending the churches

Heatmap Chart

Administrators can now create Heatmap charts independently of having date information. The Heatmap chart is like a Scatter chart. Like the Scatter chart, the Heatmap chart allows you to plot two variables against one another using an X and a Y axis. You can configure this chart to show the count/sum or average of features using two attributes. In the example below, the Heatmap chart is used to display average response times for each call type by Borough. In this case the three red areas represent the slowest response times.

Disabling Export Options

With a single click, administrators can now remove or enable the export functionality within a view or within a Smart M.App application. When this option is enabled, the ability to export is removed from the resulting view or application be it in the tool tips or the side panel menu.

 

Comma Support for Dropdown List

Administrators can now effectively use attributes containing comma separated contents within a Dropdown List chart. With this new option, fields containing commas are parsed and displayed as unique entries within the dropdown list. In the figure below:

  • Sample Data area – example of comma separated data
  • Dropdown List Result area – how this data is parsed and presented to the end user via the dropdown list in the chart
  • Query Results – which and how many records are matched once a user has made a selection and clicked Apply

Theme Chart Measures

Measures can now be applied to the Theme chart. This allows administrators to specify an attribute to use within an Average or Sum calculation.  If Average or Sum is used, a calculation is performed and these calculated values are used within the chart. For example, you want to create a theme chart that reflects the average response time for all the different call codes. In this case, choose the Average option and specify the attribute containing the response time values. With this approach, your theme chart will display the average response time for each unique entry instead of a simple feature count.

Insert Pie Chart Functional Attribute

Administrators can add pie charts to tool tips by using a predefined functional attribute. Use this functional attribute where you need to have one or more pie charts for each unique feature in your dataset.

Extract String Functional Attribute

Administrators can now extract a part of a string and return the extracted part using a predefined functional attribute. For example, 20140428143208MD --> 20140428143208. This new functional attribute takes 2 parameters:

  • Starting index (position)
  • Ending index (position)

Configuration Panel GUI Updates

The configuration panel has been updated to include a tab-based interface. With this change, the configuration panel remains small enough to fit on most monitors, that is, administrators no longer need to change the zoom ratio to see all the configuration options.

Measures for Bar and Line Charts

In addition to Row and Pie charts, measures can now be applied to the Bar and Line charts. This functionality rounds out the support for measures as they can now be used with all appropriate charts.

AdditionAL Support For Date Parsing

Date attributes no longer need to be stored as a string. Administrators can now make use of date information that is stored as a date object. When dates are stored as a date object, the system automatically parses the date format so there is no need to supply any additional date formatting information.

 

Tool Tip Ordering

Tool tips can now be placed in any order. Click Move Up and Move Down buttons to define the display order of your tool tips.

 

Gallery Loading (Optimization)

For those users with 300+ plus views within their Gallery, an optimization has been implemented to help with long loading times. This optimization remembers your My View or All Views settings. For example, if you filtered views using the My Views button, this filter is remembered next time you enter the Gallery, and hence, only your views are retrieved from the server.

Data Table Chart

Administrators can now create Data Table charts. Use this chart to display tabular reports. For example, it can be configured to display any combination of attributes in table form. Once created, this read-only chart can be sorted by columns. In the example below, a Data Table chart is used to display information about each property within a filter. In this case, the information is sorted ascending by language.

Full screen Editing (Functional Attributes)

When creating and modifying functional attributes, administrators now have a full screen editing window. Full screen editing makes it easier to interact with your scripts.
