Tiles: Data View Type - Map



Data streams that contains location data (e.g. latitude/longitude) can be drawn on a Map using the Map view option in Tiles. Each data point in the data stream will be plotted on top of an interactive map in real-time.

Selecting the Map View Type in Tiles



The map view in Tiles will display location data for a data stream. 
The map will only recognize location data in the form of Decimal Latitude and Longitude (36.1667,-86.7833) or Degree, Minutes, Seconds (36° 10' 0" N 86° 46' 0” W). The location data must be sent as one data point inside a single data stream. A data stream that contains only valid latitude/longitude coordinates should automatically draw as a map. To manually select the Map view option in Tiles, first right-click on the desired tile (or long press if you are using a touchscreen device) and select Edit Tile from the pop-up menu, then choose the Map view in the Type drop-down menu.
