The research filters (left navigation column) allow you to refine the data set that is displayed in the scatter plot.  

Making a Filter Selection
Three easy steps for making a filter selection:

1.      Click on the desired filter (ex. Gross Floor Area)
The menu will appear to the right displaying either a set of selections or a slider bar and min and max fields.


 



 

2.      Make Filter Selections

Enter a Min and/or Max range, use the slider bar to set the values or make selections from a menu of options depending on the filter menu type.  In the example shown below, entering values in the Min and Max fields adjusts the slider bar, and since values are selected, the checkbox next to Gross Floor Area is not marked. 


 



 

3.      Close the Menu

Selecting the “X” or hitting “Enter” closes the filter menu and applies the selections to the data set.  The counter, scatter plot and summary table are updated.

Now you can move on to the next filter…

 

Filter Options

The table outlines the filter categories, sub-categories, the type of filter selection, and the filter selection options. 

Note:  All projects do not contain values for all of the filters.  Therefore, when you select a filter type, even if you select all the options, you may see the number of projects in the data set you are working with decrease.
