Make a chart from multiple attributes?

Discussion created by aurelies on Mar 9, 2018

I have what I think is a pretty common dataset: forest cover by country for several years.

The data is a polygon for each country, with various attributes for forest cover: forest in 2000, forest in 2005 etc..

 

Why can't I chart these over time? Say I want to click a country in the map and see that forest cover over the different years in a chart? This was so simple and easy in the old operations dashboard but the new version doesn't have that flexibility.

So I purchased INSIGHTS but it seems all I can do is take sums and averages of data (which is silly when I only have 1 value per polygon so the sum/avg doesn't do anything). Why can't I add more than 1 series to any of the bar charts? Like you can in the Web App Builder Widgets? It seems weird that those functionalities aren't here. 

 

I can make a summary table, which shows what I want, but then no charts are possible?

 

How should I set up my data for this? Do I need to create separate tables/feature datasets for each country?
