Narrow your filter, zero in your data perspective

Working with data can sometimes be a daunting task. Luckily CARTO Builder’s analysis interface makes it easier than ever to perform data transformation such as filtering like never before. Filtering a dataset by column value can be done in just a few simple steps directly from CARTO Builder’s layer list or by selecting “Analysis” from the layer view once a layer is selected.

In the “Add a new analysis” screen you will notice a variety of methods for manipulating and analyzing data. By selecting “Transform” and then “Filter by column value ” we have added our first analysis node to the layer’s workflow. Filtering by column value works directly with the data to only render parameters specified by the user.

Watch it now!

If you are working with numerical or date values it is possible to select a range from the data and filter out the results within the range or not meeting the criteria in the query. For string data types or columns containing letters numbers and/or symbols the filter by column value analysis allows you to search isolate and/or remove specific cell values.
