A map extent limits the map area to a region of interest that is a geographic subset of the whole data. Displaying multiple map extents in the same dashboard in Operations Dashboard for ArcGIS enables users to compare the attributes of different regions simultaneously. For example, viewing live traffic updates of Manhattan, Staten Island, and Jersey City during rush hour, or comparing crime distributions in large cities.
Choose one of the following methods to add multiple map extents in Operations Dashboard for ArcGIS:
Configure multiple bookmarks in the same web map and embed in Operations Dashboard for ArcGIS
This option is suitable for comparing map extents from the same web map with multiple bookmarks.
The image below shows the dashboard of three boroughs in New York City configured using bookmarks. Zoom in to view the specific details.
Note: Although the dashboard is saved before closing, re-opening the dashboard does not preserve the selected bookmarks. The map window shows the default map extent of the embedded web map. Click the bookmarks manually to view each map extent in each map window. It is not possible to automate the process.
Configure different map extents for multiple web maps and embed in Operations Dashboard for ArcGIS
This option is suitable for comparing multiple web maps with different map extents.
The following image shows the dashboard containing web maps with different map extents of the live traffic situations in Amsterdam, New York City, Kuala Lumpur, and London.
