Design the layout of your site

Once you've configured your site and added data, you can design the home page layout and customize the header and footer. This can all be done from the Site Editor tab. This tab allows you to design your site using the provided editor, markdown, or custom HTML.

Overview

The site editor is a full page editor that provides you with a site template that you can modify to fit your own site’s branding and data, or completely remove to start from scratch. Hover over the elements on the page to move, resize, edit, or delete elements, or click the gear icon in the upper left corner to open the site editor side panel.

Header settings

The site header can be constructed two ways: using a logo URL and a site title (simple), or using custom HTML and CSS (advanced).

    Simple workflow
  1. Select Use logo and site title.
  2. Enter your title under Site Title.
  3. Enter your image under Logo URL. Images will be scaled to fit a height of 50 pixels.

    Advanced workflow
  1. Select Use custom HTML/CSS.

    A default header appears on the page and a CSS box appears in the side panel.

  2. Click the gear icon at the upper right of the header to edit the HTML.
  3. Click the gear icon again to view your changes.
  4. Modify the CSS box in the side panel and click Apply Changesto see the effects on your HTML.
Caution:

Header HTML does not support embedded JavaScript. Script tags will be ignored.

Note:

The area for My Data and Sign In cannot be edited or removed in order to maintain functionality of the site.

Theme Builder

Determine your site’s theme with the following color options:

  • Header Background Color—Affects the header.
  • Header Text Color—Affects the header text.
  • Body Background Color—Affects the color of transparent home page rows and the page background color of the search results and dataset pages.
  • Body Text Color—Affects the color for regular text throughout the site.
  • Body Link Color—Affects the color links and buttons throughout the site and the hover state of links in the header.

Tip:

Text color can also be changed by row.

Layout Builder

The basic layout of the page is organized by rows and widgets. A widget must be placed in a row. There is no limit to the number of widgets that can be placed in a row. To edit any card, click the gear icon. To delete any card, click the trash can icon.

Use rows to construct the overall layout and house the widgets.

  1. Drag a row from the side panel onto the page.

    Markers appear on the page to guide you.

  2. Hover over the row, and three icons appear on the right side: arrows for moving the row around the page, a gear icon for editing, and an x for deleting the row.
  3. Click the gear icon to switch to edit mode.
  4. Set the text color for this specific row.
  5. Set either a background color (transparent is default) or a background image.

Chart Card

Create simple charts directly from your datasets, or enter your own chart JSON to create a custom chart.

Bar Chart

Bar charts are created from queries to a selected dataset and are automatically updated as your dataset is updated.

  1. Drag a chart widget onto an existing row.
  2. Hover over the widget and click the gear icon to switch to edit mode.
  3. Bar Chart will be selected by default.
  4. Click (+) Add Data.
  5. Select an item from your available data services.

    Numeric and string fields can be used in charts. By default when you select a category attribute the resulting chart will be a count of this attribute

  7. Optionally Choose Value Attribute to pick a numeric field to serve as a value metric for your category attribute. Once selected, the default statistical operation on this field is Sum. You can change the Statistical Operation by using the drop down to the right of the Choose Value Attribute selector. The value attribute supports Min, Max, Sum, Average, and Count. By selecting count the value attribute is de-selected (because there is no need for an additional field to count the category attribute).

    Numeric and string fields can be used in charts. By default when you select a category attribute the resulting chart will be a count of this attribute

  8. Optionally, in the Options section you can enable/disable and customize the Chart Title , Height (in pixels), the Category Label for the x-axis, and the Value Label for the y-axis label.

  6. Select Choose Category Attribute to pick the primary charting item from your data.

    Numeric and string fields can be used in charts. By default when you select a category attribute the resulting chart will be a count of this attribute

  7. Optionally Choose Value Attribute to pick a numeric field to serve as a value metric for your category attribute. Once selected, the default statistical operation on this field is Sum. You can change the Statistical Operation by using the drop down to the right of the Choose Value Attribute selector. The value attribute supports Min, Max, Sum, Average, and Count. By selecting count the value attribute is de-selected (because there is no need for an additional field to count the category attribute).

    Numeric and string fields can be used in charts. By default when you select a category attribute the resulting chart will be a count of this attribute

  8. Optionally, in the Options section you can enable/disable and customize the Chart Title , Height (in pixels), the Category Label for the label of each pie wedge in the tool tip, and the Value Label for the label of the metric in the tool tip.

JSON Chart

Custom charts are created from JSON using a specific chart specification.

  1. Drag a chart widget onto an existing row.
  2. Hover over the widget and click the gear icon to switch to edit mode.
  3. Select the JSON tile
  4. Enter your JSON in the JSON Chart Specification field.
  5. Optionally, in the Options section you can enable/disable and customize the Chart Title and Height (in pixels).

JSON Specification

Entering custom JSON allows you to create custom charts that leverage the Cedar library. A specification is made up of the following components:

Datasets

The datasets array specifies an ArcGIS feature service URL and query parameters. Refer to the REST API documentation to learn more about query parameters.

{ "datasets": [ { "url": "SampleArcGISFeatureService_URL", "name" : "Number_of_SUM",
"query": { "groupByFieldsForStatistics": "Zip", "outStatistics": [{
"statisticType": "sum", "onStatisticField": "Number_of",
"outStatisticFieldName": "Number_of_SUM" }] } } ]
}

Series

The series array allows you to specify the mappings between fields in the service response and the visual aspects of the chart (x, y axes, color/size for scatterplot charts, radius for pie charts).

{ "series": [ { "source": "Number_of_SUM", "category": { "field": "Type", "label": "Facility
Use" }, "value": { "field":"Number_of_SUM","label":"Total Students" }} ] }

Overrides

The override property allows you to specify visual overrides, such as color or positioning, for the entire chart.

"overrides": {
      "legend": {
          "enabled": true
      },
      "backgroundColor": "#E6E6FA",
      "backgroundAlpha": 1
  }
}

Specification

The specification property allows you to input an entire Cedar specification for a purely custom chart. View examples for existing chart specifications.
