About this accelerator

A dashboard helps you to monitor events or activities at a glance by providing key insights and analysis about your data on one or more pages or screens. For more information, see Creating a dashboard.


Maps help you to do geographic analysis of data by using locations such as states, regions, and postal codes. Over 235, administrative boundaries and over 220, zip and postal codes in over 245 countries are supported. When you use a map in a dashboard, you can show data for multiple layers: regions, points, and latitude/longitude locations. For more information, see Using maps.
