Overview of the Maps Module

The Maps module uses SQL queries to construct dynamic maps that make data more tangible and easier to interpret.

Access the Maps Page


  1. In the module navigation menu, select Tools > Maps.

    The Maps page appears.

    The Maps page contains the following items: 

    • Browse: This allows you to select a preexisting query from the catalog.
    • Create New: This allows you to create a query using the Design or SQL workspace.
    • : This allows you to search preexisting queries.
    • View Map: This grid column contains the names of the existing Map queries. Select the name of the query whose visual map you want to view.
    • Source Query: This grid column contains the filepaths of each stored query. Select a hyperlink to access the Results workspace for that query.
  2. On the Maps page, select Browse.
    The Select a query from the catalog window appears.

Map Query Workflow

This workflow provides the basic, high-level steps for using this module. The steps and links in this workflow do not reference every possible procedure. For more procedures, see the links in the Related Information section.

  1. Use the GIS Data Loader to load your geospatial data into GE Digital APM
  2. Modify the Baseline Map Query

The baseline Map query is highly customizable, and more complex queries can be created using the following additional steps:

  1. Create an Expression
  2. Create a Prompt with a List of Query Results
  3. Create a Hyperlink

You can also use the following type of SQL query to further customize your map and the data displayed on it.
