Creating a custom report for your Proximity Search or Query Tool is a new way to let your map users extract information and insights that may not be available in your raw attribute data.

Viewed through this reporting lens, data from features can provide critical insight: of a given set of features that meet a criteria of a query or spatial search,

  • what is the unemployment rate?
  • what is the median sale price of apartments?
  • what proportion of the female population are blind?

By creating equations using attribute values and simple arithmetic, these answers can be explored by your map users. As the map administrator, you can build these reports into your map for laser targeted use.

The custom report builder is found at the final step of both the Query Tool and the Spatial Analysis wizards in your toolbox.

Usage

Set the Query or Spatial search parameters you want the users to access, and tick “View Results as Report” checkbox. Click next.

On the following screen, add a new Custom Report Widget.

The report builder includes a WYSIWYG editor so you can style your reports.

To insert an equation, click on the green “Σ” button on the upper left of the report editor toolbar.

Note: Once you Insert the equation, it will be automatically wrapped in a hash/bracket container so the system knows to process it as an equation: #{ your equation }#

Do not remove the hashes or brackets.

Once you have inserted an equation, the Preview window on the right hand side will show how your final report will look.

If your preview window stops updating, it means there is a parsing error. Please inspect your equation for invalid arguments or missing brackets.
