This was an ASUG webcast that SAP provided last week. I want to thank Ashokkumar KN , Product Manager, SAP Lumira for providing the webcast and gowdatimma.ramu for answering questions.

Figure 1: Source: SAP

Geo coding is available for self service use cases

Users can use the attributes in the dimension panel

When you see a globe icon next to it to build a geo hierarchy by name, it will show what level to map to, and the system will create a geo hierarchy

Figure 2: Source: SAP

Data may have street level; default in Prepare it is city level

Navteq is embedded in Lumira

Lumira builds the hierarchy based on what user has configured

Figure 3: Source: SAP

If you cannot find the data, and can’t bundle a huge geo database in Lumira

As Figure 3 shows, cities less than 100K population are not in Lumira

If cities are less than 100K, you build geo code externally using Data Services or external services, you could map it to your data using latitude and longitude and then build your geo hierarchies

Figure 4: Source: SAP

By default, Lumira provides Navteq experience for an offline experience; you don’t connect to a server to connect to maps

Maps plot Choropleth, Bubble, Pie charts

Esri Base maps are in Lumira as shown in Figure 5

Figure 6: Source: SAP

SAP Lumira offers ESRI support for 4 out of 9 base maps

If there are too many points, offer automatic clustering

Basic feature layer – for ESRI services

For interactions you can build a tool tip

Figure 7 shows the roadmap, with planned to support on premise ESRI

More support for Geo references, customize geo code

Support HANA geospatial engine, more interactive experience in Lumira

I learned a great deal from this webcast, and used some of the Lumira maps functionality to map ASUG webcast registration from another webcast using an ESRI Lumira map:

Join us for the next ASUG Lumira webcast next week: March 28:  BI - Analytics: What's New in SAP Lumira® 1.30
