Hi all,

I'm very interested in https://community.esri.com/groups/insights-for-arcgis?sr=search&searchId=82ba7852-f9d1-470d-b706-7bb..., but I would like to know how many features can handle at once, we have very large datasets (around 1.2 million areas), and I'm not sure if it would be able to handle them.

Thanks,

Pablo

Hi Pablo,

Thanks for your question.

Currently, Insights is limited to displaying ~50,000 features. This isn't a limitation of Insights, rather a limitation of the browser. 

However, it's important to note... Although we cannot always display all features, we do the analysis on all features. For example: Statistics - Such as the trend line, is done on the whole dataset although the scatter plot may not show all the points.

Also worth noting... At the 2.2 release we introduced binning! So you will be able to see all your features aggregated. See below:

Hope this helps!

Were there limitations listed in the documentation for Insights?
