In Intellicus, you can now create advanced geographical maps in HSV reports. This helps you to view your data on real world maps and get a clearer understanding of location-based insights.
To create GIS maps, you need to first make the location dimension GIS enabled while creating analytical object. Then you need to map the location with their respective type, that is if dimension is country you need to map it with country of your choice.
The following screenshots show an analytical object where we have made the location dimension GIS enabled and mapped the country dimension with the required location respectively.

Let us now see the resultant report. To create the GIS map, open your HSV report, change the crosstab to map view under ‘Change View Type’. GIS Maps will display data in the form of bubbles of the first selected measure (in case of multiple measures). You can also view values of various measures as tool tip.
Under Map Properties, you can choose a Map Layer as “Standard” or “Satellite” to display your specific GIS dataset. Also, the Marker Color on the map can be specified.
In this report you can visualize the country-wise total insurance value for various policy types.

Intellicus supports offline map providers to render geospatial data, with offline layers/tiles.
To map the fields, data should be configured in “gisareamapping.xlsx” and to draw offline maps, appropriate data should be present under “gisareamapping.xls”
These files are placed at “<Intellicus installation path>\ReportEngine\config\maps\GIS”
You can select legend(s) on the map and the points rendered would be filtered based on selected legends. The default appearance of the legends can be customized by editing the “map.imt” file under “<Intellicus installation path>\ReportEngine\templates\maps\leaflet\Olap”.
