What is a hotspot?
A hotspot is a group of events that occur in the same geographical area within a predefined timeframe. We display these events as blue circles that display the number of events and the total idling time that occurred there.
If you zoom in on a cluster, it will break down into smaller and smaller regions. A click on a safety cluster displays the breakdown of events by severity and type.
The hotspot map can be filtered by organizational unit or sub-unit, and displays the top 100 hotspots. This feature is particularly useful for supporting safety or emissions campaigns.
A click on a safety cluster displays a breakdown of events by severity and type.
A click on an idling hotspot displays the total idling time, and a breakdown by severity.
You can choose whether to view the map in satellite or street view. Using the street view can help you analyze what caused the area to be dangerous (e.g. a sharp turn) or caused so many drivers to idle (e.g. gas station, rest areas etc.)
You can download the data to an Excel file using the Excel icon located on the top right corner of the table. You can also minimize the table to see the map in full view.
To switch between the idling and safety maps, use the 2 buttons on the top right corner of the screen.
The blue menu on the right provides additional options:
Exclude yellow events from clusters and take only red events into consideration for calculation purposes
Display only the selected hotspot
Landmarks - display all or selected landmarks on the map. To select a specific landmark for display click on the small arrow on the button to open the landmark list, and then select the one you want.
