Seek is a powerful tool that gives you the ability to quickly find and discover data. Now, it’s possible to further your analysis by leveraging our Create Visualization feature from within Seek. You can use this feature to build a standalone table or callout directly from the data you are viewing in Seek — empowering you to turn your data into something that can be shared in a visual format without the challenge of recreating your data selections in a separate report. A visualization created from Seek can be used in a report or exported and used anywhere you need, such as a newsletter or presentation. The Seek to visualization feature steps you through exactly how to make that happen.

Getting Started: Seek

How to: Use Seek

How to: Create a Map from Seek

Choose Geography

Both tables and callouts are useful tools for comparing data across a single geography or multiple geographies. You can also select a series of sub-geographies to compare within your main geography.

Choose Data

Choose the data you are interested in exploring. You can include as many indicators as you need – you will be able to choose all or a smaller grouping of your selections when you go through the visualization creation process.

Create Visualization

  1. Once you have the geography (or geographies) and data that you want to map, choose “Create Visualization” from the top of the page.

  2. Select either the callout or table visualization type

  3. Give your new report a name and assign it to a folder if desired. For organization, we recommend creating a folder specifically for your Seek visualizations.

  4. Click “Go to Geography Selection”

  5. Choose the geography (or geographies) you want to include

  6. Choose the indicator(s) that you want to include in your callout or table

  7. Click “Create Visualization”

Outcome

The table or callout is created in a new report that is opened in a new tab. From here, you can:

  • Download this visualization

  • Move/copy it to another report

  • Keep it here for reference

  • Delete it if you no longer need it

  • Go back to your original tab with Seek and create a new visualization from one of the other indicators you selected
