Interactive Maps with Multiple Dimensions

Arcadia Instant enables you to display two distinct dimensions in the Circle Layer by placing the secondary dimension on the Colors shelf.

The following steps extend the work completed in Interactive Map Visuals, and demonstrate how to visualize two separate measures on the same map.

Developer Note. To use this feature, an Admin user must specify, through the Site Settings interface, the API keys granted to your organization. This is described in Enabling API Keys for Interactive Map Visuals.
  1. Clone the visual California Woods, previously built in Interactive Map Visuals.
