Quicksight GIS Development

I was wondering if there was good documentation on how to develop a GIS application using Quicksight and Redshift? Is there a good person to contact about this?


Hi Jon,

can you please give some detail about "GIS application " ? I will be in a good position to support you :slight_smile:

Hi Naveed,

Thanks for responding to my question.

We are really interested in utilizing QuickSights mapping functions to create a maps and to manage Geographic data. We understand the basic functionality behind importing tables from a data source and plotting geographic features in dashboards, but are wondering if we can go beyond the basic capabilities. For instance, we’d love to embed a Quicksight map into a web application and utilize API calls to update said map.

I know it’s kind of a long shot, but we just wanted to start a conversation to learn more about how the mapping functionality is built and more.

A little back story, we currently use ESRI for all our GIS needs, but we’d like to look at building our own GIS with all AWS components.

Hope you doing good.

In short, the process should be call api data into SPICE (Dataset) and set the period of data refresh. We can set minimum 15 minutes data incremental refresh.

Secondly, design map using analysis and finally Quicksight allow embedded graphics/analysis features used anywhere you want to use.
