Statistical Query

Demonstrates how to query a feature table to get aggregated statistics for a specified field.

How it works

To query statistics on a feature table field:

  1. Create a ServiceFeatureTable from a URL.
  2. Create a list of StatisticDefinitions specifying which field to query against, the aggregate type, and an optional alias.
  3. Create StatisticsQueryParameters passing in the definitions. You can also use the setters to specify an area for the query (geometry) or a custom where clause.
  4. Call featureTable.queryStatisticsAsync(queryParameters) to make the query.
  5. Get the StatisticsQueryResult from the ListenableFuture. To see the stastics, iterate through statisticsQueryResult.iterator() to get the StatisticRecords.
  6. The map of statistics can be retreived with record.getStatistics() for printing or showing in a list view.
