What is Slider Filter in vMAP?

Slider is one of vMAP's dynamic filtering features. With the Slider Filter, you can filter objects (points/lines/polygons) on the mapview by changing the min and max values (value range) within the range of the slider. For example, you can set the range of slider to be based on the population field (from polygons of the demographics layer), then click and drag the slider handles (circular buttons) on the slider to set a value range. The polygons that fall within the value range will be displayed on the mapview in real time.

Please follow the below instructions to set up the Slider filter:

Step 1. To add a Slider, click the plus1 button on the left side of Layer Manager panel and click the Slider icon to activate the tab.
