Icon Map Question



I'm pretty new to the Icon Map. It's obviously and awesome visual and there's so much to learn about it. One thing I'm trying to figure out is, is it possible to both change the image of the lat/lon points AND also place polygons on the map? I know that they both use the WKT feature so not sure if they can somehow be simultaneously used.

Hi @kewaynes did you find a solution for this? I'd really like to be able to display points and polygons in Icon Map and to be able to filter on a polygon name and the points not disappear!

I created kind of a janky solution. For every filter combination, I have a copy of the polygon in the record. So if there is a polygon that vehicle A, B & C were all in. The data shows a record for that polygon 3 times. That way if any of those vehicles are filtered to, the polygon will still show.


I believe the more efficient way to do this would be to map the polygons with geojson. Haven't really played around with that too much though so not sure exactly how that would work.
