IntroData RequirementsCustomize OptionsJS API Sample

Cluster Drill

Plot hundreds or even thousands of points on the map and cluster. Each point will represent a location, asset, event, etc as an icon that can be sized, clustered, and colored in many different ways using the various properties on the appearance and alerts tab.

Clusters are grouped based on visual proximity on the map, which will vary based on zoom level. Additional options to change the cluster style are available.


Data Requirements

Locations Property: When using the Points layer, it is recommended to use Latitude,Longitude formatted as comma separated: “43.434,-123.324”

If you provide locations like addresses, countries, states, or Cities, Google will automatically geocode these locations, which could introduce latency in performance.

NOTE: Contact Centigon Solutions for batch geocoding options.

Cluster / Drill is a modified version of points layer. As such, there are multiple properties that can be customized at the view and layer level to control how end users interface with clusters.
