Feature Friday: Control the maps layer selection and negative numbers format


Maps are a valuable and easy-to-use way to display large amounts of data. However, in a map visualization with multiple data layers, selecting the data elements needed for your analysis can be challenging without selecting data from another layer. This feature allows you to turn off the selection of unnecessary map layers for your analysis. With the selection of other layers turned off, you can maintain your rich map presentation without the risk of selecting unnecessary information. This update also enhanced the customization functionality of negative numbers in map tooltips. Formatting negative numbers in red allows you to identify areas of concern, such as restaurants with below-average ratings or areas with natural disaster risk.
