Result datasets

Performing analysis often generates a result dataset Results in the data pane. You can visualize data from your results as other maps, charts, and tables or use the dataset in analysis.

Result datasets appear in the data pane listed below the dataset that is used to perform the analysis, which will help you to keep track of your result datasets. If more than one result was created from the same dataset, the results will appear in reverse chronological order, meaning the most recent results will appear at the top of the list.

Note:

Not all operations create a result dataset. For example, enabling location on a dataset and calculating a field will update the original dataset rather than creating a new dataset. Only charts that perform attribute aggregation, such as bar charts and donut charts, will create a result dataset.

If you're unhappy with your results, you can rerun your spatial analytics using different parameters from the Analysis view Analysis view or undo your action using the Undo button Undo.

Note:

If an error occurs while performing analysis on the data, you can undo the analysis and revert to the original dataset. In some cases, such as field calculations, this means that any calculated fields done on that dataset view will be lost as the data is reverted to its original state.

Spatial results

A result dataset is created when you run Create Buffer/Drive Times, Spatial Aggregation, Spatial Filter, Enrich Data, Calculate Density, or Find Nearest. The result datasets can be used in both spatial and nonspatial analysis, and can be used to create maps, charts, and tables.

Nonspatial results

A result dataset is created when you run Create Regression Model or Predict Variable, or create a chart that performs an aggregation or a calculation. Results from Create Regression Model or Predict Variable can be used in spatial analysis or to create maps if the original dataset had a location field. All nonspatial result datasets can be used for nonspatial analysis and to create charts and tables.

Nonspatial analysis can be accessed from the Action button Action on a chart or table. If the chart created a result dataset, then both the result and the original dataset can be used as inputs for the analysis.

Card filter results

A result dataset is created when a card level filter is added to a map, chart, or table. The result dataset includes the fields used on the card and the filtered field. The result dataset will include the same filter applied to it at the dataset level.

Note:

If new cards are created using the result dataset from a card filter, then all of the cards will reference the dataset filter on the result dataset and the card filter will be removed from the original card. Since the original card also references the result dataset, there will be no change to the data being displayed.
