Element Details: Animated Map
 Back


Available in: Logi Info Source code name: AnimatedMapIntroduced in: v9.0.30

AnimatedMaps are animated, interactive and data-driven maps.

The RegionNameColumn should be to the name/id of a region inside a map. For example, a value of VA would specify the region/state Virginia inside a US map or a value of 038 would specify the region/country Spain in a Europe map.

In order to help map region names in the source data with the id codes in the maps, there are XML files for each map that cross reference place names to the IDs. These are located in the rdTemplate/FusionMap folder. For example, Europe.xml has nodes for each country. The node for Spain has the internalID (038), ShortName (ES) and LongName (Spain)). The developer can add a Join element under the DataLayer joining the value returned from the tables in his DB, thus populating the data the map’s region IDs.

If the region names in an XML file don’t match the values from your data source, you can copy the XML file into _SupportFiles and customize it with your own values.
