Key Takeaways

  • Every data element is always represented on the screen (up to 10,000 row).
  • Animations show the transition between different views of the data.

In this SandDance visual, we’re analyzing the population of different world cities.

  • Under the Format paintbrush, there is only one customization available for the SandDance.
  • Turning off the Presentation property gives you the capability to dig deeper into the configuration. That additional configuration is described in the video above.

The majority of this visual is configured from within the design surface after turning Presentation off.

In addition to these properties, there are settings that appear on every visual to adjust the background color, add a border around the visual and lock the aspect ratio.
