Search Results

Unless search phrase explicitly specifies the visual type, Arcadia Instant displays natural language search results using a visual type that best matches the number and type of fields of the search, for every searched dataset.

Arcadia Data displays the results of a natural language search directly in the search modal.

Note the main features of search results:

Search Results

  1. Search Criteria

    This is identical to your original search.

  2. Result Dataset

    The dataset where a particular search result is found. Note that each search result may represent a different dataset.

  3. Result Visual

    The search result itself is a visual. Note that Arcadia Instant displays results in a default visual type that best represents the number and type of fields in the search phrase.

    You can change the display type, either by specifying the visual type in the search string and starting a new search, or by clicking the (explore) icon to preview results in alternate visual types.

  4. Explore

    Clicking the (explore) icon enables you to choose an alternate visual.

    See Changing Result Visual Type Through Explore.
  5. Explain

    When you click the (explain) icon, it opens a tooltip that explains the parameters of the result visual: its dataset, the measures and dimensions on its shelves, filters, and sort.

    In our example, the dataset is State Populations. The three populated shelves are:

    • Geo Shelf

      [state]

    • Aggregates Shelf

      SUM([population])

    • Filters Shelf

      (([year] = 1990))
