Trackmap Panel for Grafana

license standard-readme compliant

Map plugin to visualize timeseries data from geo:json or NGSIv2 sources as either a Ant-path, Hexbin, or Heatmap.

Usage

Queries

To use the plugin the data needs to be formatted as a table with either contains location in NGSIv2 format:

{
  ...,
  "location": {
    "type": "geo:json",
    "value": {
      "coordinates": [55.96086,9.75394],
      "type": "Point"
    }
  }
}

Or simply a lat and lon.

A example of a query for location against a crateDB/PostgreSQL:

SELECT time_index, location
FROM doc.table_name
WHERE $__timeFilter(time_index)
ORDER BY time_index

And a example query for lat and lon against a crateDB/PostgreSQL:

SELECT time_index, latitude as lat, longitude as lon
FROM doc.table_name
WHERE $__timeFilter(time_index)
ORDER BY time_index

Settings

You can change the starting zoom and center of the map, as well as the maximum zoom under the map options:

map

There is a options to enable the use of the maps min and max coordinates. This adds or updates $maxLat, $minLat, $maxLon and $minLon with the maps bounding box. Which can then be used in the query, as an example:

SELECT time_index, latitude as lat, longitude as lon
FROM doc.table_name
WHERE $__timeFilter(time_index)
AND latitude >= $minLat
AND latitude <= $maxLat
AND longitude >= $minLon
AND longitude <= $maxLon
ORDER BY time_index

The first time this is enabled does it require a move/zoom on the map for it to create the variables.

An option for the map to update the data after moving/zooming, is available when using the maps min and max coordinates. Do note that enabling this might make it spam your database, and can queue op request to it.

There are three visualization options to choose from, Hexbin, Heatmap and Antpath.

Hexbin

hexbin

The hexbin have 2 options.

  • Color range which lets you set the colors of the hexbin based on there value (number of datapoints with the hexbin), with the left color being the lowest count, and the right color being the highest count.
  • And Radius range with the first field being the initial size of the hexbin changing to the size of the second field.

Heatmap

heatmap

There are no settings available for Heatmap

Antpath

antpath

The antpath have the following options available:

  • Delay: The delay of the animation flux
  • Dash array: The size of the animated dashes
  • Weight: The weight of the path
  • Color: The color of the path
  • Pulse color: Adds a color to the dashed flux
  • Paused: Toggle stop/start of the animation
  • Reverse: Reverses the animation flow

Build

To build the plugin, you need either yarn or npm.

First you need to install the dependencies by running:

npm install

After the dependencies are installed, you can build the plugin by running the following command:

npm run build

You can also run the code in development with the following command:

npm run dev

Install

If you are running grafana locally, you can clone or download the repository directly into the plugin directory of grafana, and then reset the grafana-server, and the plugin should be automatically detected.

Or if you are using docker, a guide can be found here.

There are more ways to install plugins for grafana, which can be found on their website.
