Analyze map responses by filtering

The analysis tool makes it easy to analyze the map data you have collected, without requiring you to transfer the Excel sheet to any other format or software. The filtering function allows you to compare and contrast map responses according to different criteria. You can have multiple filters on at the same time.

How to filter responses in the analysis tool

  1. a_add_layer.png

    Go to Analyze.

    Choose the map question that you want to analyze from the drop-down menu. One map question = one map or analysis layer. Map questions are categorized according to the text on the drawbutton. You can change their titles after adding the layer. 

    Click Add analysis layer to add it on the map.  You should now see all responses to the question.



  2. a_filtering_mode.png

    Access the filter options by clicking the expand (arrow) symbol on the upper right corner of the layer. Choose the Filter tab.

    Pop-up questions = the follow-up questions that come up in a pop-up window after a map marking has been drawn. 

    Background questions = the questions not related to map questions, i.e. all the rest of your questions

    In this example, we are focusing on a pop-up question but filtering background questions works in exactly the same manner.

     Choose the question you want to filter from the drop-down menu and click Add filter.


  4. Choose the condition according to which the responses should be filtered. These are

    • contains 
    • does not contain
    • is exactly 
    • is not
    • contains any of
    • does not contain any of

    Then write the word you want to filter in the field below. The responses should appear in the map view. In the example below, the responses have been filtered with the term 'beautiful' and the ones visible on the map contain that word.


    If the question you are filtering was a multiple choice one, you choose the multiple choice answer to filter by instead of a word.

Now that you know how to use the filtering tool, why not test different ways visualizing the map responses?
