New Features Focus

Dataset drillable for Horizontal barchart

This new feature enables you to simplify the drill configuration, on the horizontal barchart. The objective is to use a hierarchy approach to build your chart dataset, and so to standardize the configuration for all drillable charts : today the horizontal barchart, and tomorrow the mapchart, the bubblechart, and the waterfall.

France ile de france   12000000 population
France ile de france paris 3000000 population

Old configuration is still available, but will be deprecated. For your next drillable horizontal barchart, you’ll have to configure your chart as below :

Declare hierarchy columns

When making a data request, you can declare a hierarchy, from the top to bottom

hierarchy: ["country","region,"department"]

Adding dimensions columns

Often, more columns are used to identify a data row than just the hierarchy (for example you would like to filter on a specific metric). Therefore, all of them must be known in order to match them with the correct parent.

That’s why it’s necessary to declare in the dimensions list any column that is needed to find the correct parent:

  domain: "hierarchy_country"
hierarchy: ["pays", "region", "departement"]
dimensions: ["metric"]

Chart improvement


You can now set up the hideEmptygroups in stacked-barchart.

Bubble chart

We observed that the difference betweeen the bubble size is more linked to the size of the bubble than its radius, so we resized the bubble based on its area.
