How to Use The Filter Option When Mapping Nigeria Local Government Areas

Dynamic Data Filtering Results Dynamic Results

If you have hundreds or perhaps even thousands of data points, it is highly recommended to use the filter options when mapping Nigeria local government areas. Nigeria is divided into 774 local government areas (LGAs) which are further subdivided into wards. Recently, the country faced yet another surge of Covid-19 as the new variant, Omicron, has penetrated the population of some LGAs. Multi-sectors are joined together to address the situation. Hence, it is imperative to see and communicate information in a timely fashion. To do this, you need to filter your map to focus your analysis on the locations that matter the most. 

Let your local government areas of Nigeria map dynamically produce results. Whether you’re doing data analysis for health sector, in business, or in any other industry, you cannot go wrong in analyzing data with filters. You cannot fully understand the connection between locations if there are tons of pins scattered everywhere on the map. Accurate data analysis requires filtering the pins so you can focus on analyzing one distinct characteristic. Filter the data by criteria not only for better visibility but to focus more on the right group of pins that you want to dive deeper into.
