Over the course of the next few months, we will publish the top list of shortcuts or CityDash Cheat Codes to uplevel your dashboard skills.

Question: How can I view a zoomed-in heat map of people?

Cheat Code # 21: You can double-click any block group on the map to zoom in and visualize a fresh snapshot or heat map of people

Long Answer: CityDash displays people density maps for every city. The right panel within the dashboard shows the complete list of census block groups. You can scroll through the list and find your block group. We have observed that users of CityDash prefer map-based visual search and discovery. It is indeed much easier to visually identify the block based on its distinct shape or relative location. Once you've identified the block on the map, go ahead and double-click it. CityDash will automatically zoom in, load up the heat map based on the latest snapshot of people within the block, with a fresh count from mobile GPS data.
