Feature Release

City Dashboards

With the new City Dashboards, you can keep track of all the important KPIs for your cities right at a single place! City Dashboards will be the default view in Locale now, so you see what's important to you whenever you log in.

City Dashboards consists of two parts, The City Dashboard and A Global View. As mentioned, you can add your important metrics/KPIs from any of your existing consoles to the city dashboard of a corresponding Service Area Boundary (SAB Layer) as a widget. Not just metrics, you can also add your cohorts as a widget into the dashboard.

The Global View

The global view will help you see a ranked list of metric/KPI for all the cities your operations functions in. You can choose to rank the cities based on the percentage change in the metric value (growth) or the absolute value of the metrics for the cities. The cities are defined by the SAB layers you create in your Layer Catalog. The global view can be selected using the SAB picker on top and click on Global View to see the global listing of all your cities, ranked according to the metric.

To learn more about City Dashboards and play around with it, login to your Locale account now!

Featured image for Improvements in Cohorts, GeoSearch and TimeSeries

Feature Improvements

Cohorts

We have updated our cohort consoles with some additional features to get the most out of it. Your cohort consoles are much faster and snappier than before! The new UI improvements and entity count helps you better understand the number of entities present in the cohorts you are creating!

Geo Search

The search functionality in our consoles will also include your SABs by default in your search results instead of having to switch to specific views!

Descriptive Texts for Time Selection in TimeSeries

One of the tiny improvements we have done in our time series is to show any active/live time selected as Last 24hours, Last hour, Last 7 days etc, will be shown as the same instead of full date range! It will help you easily identify the live time range selected in the time series.

Other Minor Improvements

We have now attached docs to the metric creation dialog, so you can quickly access the docs and learn more about different types of metrics on the go! You can click on the Docs icon on the create metric dialog in your console to learn more about it.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed issues with consoles not showing data when overlays/boundaries are deleted.

  • Fixed issues with Looping App Update Notifications when multiple tabs are opened.

  • Fixed issues with Dynamic timelines in Cohorts.

Featured image for Latest time spent metric, Product improvements and introducing cohorts!

Last month we released Entity Lookup Consoles, the goal was to help our users to get detailed tabular view of all their entities with their latest location. With the improvement and direction we are moving with the features in Lookup Consoles, we are rebranding Lookup Consoles to Cohorts. Cohorts will be your go-to place to track entities with specific behavior or properties. You can create an insightful cohort of an entity just by applying its properties as filter or use metrics as filters. The change will be reflected in the product now, and you will see the Lookup Consoles will be named as Cohorts.

Features

Latest Option in Time Spent Metric

Ever wanted to see how long a bike/cars is being idle right now? With the introduction of latest aggregation option in Time Spent Metrics within Cohorts/Entity Lookup Consoles, you can get the latest time spent on an event by an entity. This can be used to identity bikes/vehicles/riders which has been currently staying idle.

To use the latest option, simple create a Time Spent Metric from your Entity lookup consoles and choose latest as the aggregation for the time_spent column!

Improvements and Bug Fixes 🪲

  • Cohorts/Entity lookup consoles will be opened by default in hybrid (Table + Map) Mode

  • Your Cohorts/Entity Lookup Consoles will retain the last seen location of the map from the time you saved it

  • Lookup queries and data loading is faster than ever!

  • Minor bug fixes in filtering and sorting in Cohorts/Entity Lookup Consoles

Featured image for Editable Shape Filters, Point Clusters and much more

We're back with some exciting improvements to some of our most powerful features! Recently we had released some of our most requested features, Shape Filters on Hex-Heatmaps and Entity Lookup Tables. Since then, we had improved these features and we are here for more!

Enhancements

Editable Shape Filters

The existing shape filters does a good job at helping users to filter data to specific hand drawn regions in a city. With editable shapes, now you can quickly update your shapes, expand, or reduce the size to get better insights and understanding of your city.

The select/edit mode will be automatically get selected as soon as you draw a shape to give you the ability to quickly change the dimensions of the shape.

Or, to edit existing shapes, simply select the edit tool and click on the shapes you want to edit.

Aggregating grids with shape filters

As some of our users requested, we have added the ability to aggregate data on the shapes instead of just the underlying grids while using shape filters. This helps you to better compare different parts of your city as a whole rather than just individual grids scattered across different areas. You can enable the aggregate option in the shape filters dropdown once you have a few shapes to see values for the shapes instead of just the grids.

Clustered Points in The Latest Location Maps

Since the release of Entity Lookup Tables and Latest Location Maps within, we had received feedbacks on improving the map view to accommodate more number of live entities in the map without making the map unusable. We are releasing clustered points in maps by default to help you visualize a large number of the latest location of entities and see them clustered according to the area you are looking at in the map.

Head over to your Entity Lookup Consoles and get a sneak peek of the new clustered points view for your entity's latest location in the map.

Enhancement

Latest Location Map on Entity Lookup Consoles

Earlier this year we released our all new Entity Lookup Consoles which helped you to get a granular view of your individual entities. You could create use case specific consoles to understand your users/supply better! Now with our latest release, you will be able to view the latest location of your entities in a map and analyze them better.

Visualize entities based on their properties

With the latest location maps, you can not just view the entities and their location, but also color them based on any of their properties or metrics. Just switch to a column from the legend and pick a color of your choice to the properties being displayed.

Highly connected with the table

Apply any filters to the table and see the result update quickly on the map. This helps you to view only what matters on the map and drill down to the list of entities with specific properties.

Like what you are seeing? Explore this feature now on your Entity Lookup Consoles from your Locale.ai account!

Enhancements

Disable Map labels or Metric values in the visualization separately

Now you can disable just the metric values, or just the map labels from the Option tab from the side panel.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed issues with calendar picking extra days on comparison mode

  • Fixed issues with Geo-popups showing comparison value instead of actual values

  • Improvements in listing workflows

Featured image for Custom Shape Filters for Better Area Analysis

Feature Release

Custom Shape Filters

Ever wanted to see data just for a custom area? Or filter and compare performances between areas? Well, with our new Shape filters, you can draw areas to filter data just for the specific area. Currently, shape filters are enabled on Normal Hex Heatmaps to filter visualizations based on Hexagonal Grids and Polygons from your layers.

Custom areas, you define it!

Shape filters are similar to your overlays and service area boundaries, but an added advantage of being able to create these shapes and filter on the fly without saving anything! Just click on the shape filters option on the top bar, click on Create new shape and start drawing the shape over your maps. You will be able to add names to these areas or create clusters out of them. Once you draw shapes and click on Apply, the metrics will automatically show values for only the specific area.

Squares, rectangles, or any polygons, we got you covered!

Currently, we support rectangles and custom polygons, which will cover most of your use case on creating custom shapes. We will be adding more tools to help you better segment areas and save your areas as custom layers or download them soon!

0

Combine with existing abilities to download GeoJSON for specific areas

Your consoles can already download existing visualization as GeoJSON format to visualize on external applications. With shape filters now you can download only specific areas of the map/visualization as GeoJson Files.

Login to Locae.ai and head out to any of your consoles and start playing around with shape filters!

Create cross entity metrics with ease!

One of the powerful features of Entity Consoles is that you can create cross entity metrics without worrying about joins or writing a single line of SQL. Forget joining tables across databases, Locale's Entity Consoles helps you derive meaningful insights by creating cross entity metrics like Order's per rider, Revenue per vehicle, Profit per User and much more!

Derive insights by sorting with multiple columns

The ability to sort the table with multiple columns helps you find the top entities with any specified conditions. Feel at home with the sort option in any column in the table, just like an Excel sheet!
