ESM: import FeatureReductionBinning from "@arcgis/core/layers/support/FeatureReductionBinning";
Class: esri/layers/support/FeatureReductionBinning
Inheritance: FeatureReductionBinning Accessor
Since: ArcGIS API for JavaScript 4.24

This class configures binning as a means of reducing and summarizing point features in a FeatureLayer, CSVLayer, GeoJSONLayer, WFSLayer, or OGCFeatureLayer. This feature reduction method spatially groups points into bins in geographic space based on predefined geohashes.

Binning only applies to layers with Point geometries in a MapView. It currently does not apply to layers with polyline and polygon geometries.

Known Limitations

  • Not supported in 3D SceneView.
  • Not supported in MapImageLayer.
  • Only supported for layers with a point geometry type.
  • Layer views with an applied FeatureEffect cannot be binned.

Autocasts from Object[]

An array of aggregate fields that summarize layer fields from features contained within each bin. These fields may be used by the popupTemplate, labelingInfo, and renderer.

Example
featureReduction.fields = [{
  name: "aggregateCount",
  statisticType: "count"
}, {
  name: "SUM_population",
  onStatisticField: "population",
  statisticType: "sum"
}, {
  name: "AVG_age",
  onStatisticField: "age",
  statisticType: "avg"
}, {
  name: "AVG_population_density",
  alias: "Average population density",
  onStatisticExpression: {
    expression: "$feature.population / AreaGeodetic($feature, 'square-miles')",
    title: "population density",
    returnType: "number"
  },
  statisticType: "avg"
}];
fixedBinLevel Number

The fixed geohash level used to create bins. Currently, bin sizes do not dynamically change as the user zooms in and out of the map. Larger numbers will create smaller bins. Levels range from 1 - 9. The following table suggests which bin level to use depending on the approximate view scale.

fixedBinLevel view.scale
1 > 120,000,000
2 ~88,000,000
3 ~14,000,000
4 ~3,000,000
5 ~500,000
6 ~84,000
7 ~10,000
8 ~3,000
9 ~400
Default Value:3
Example
featureReduction.fixedBinLevel = 4;
labelingInfo LabelClass[]autocast
Autocasts from Object[]

Defines labels for bins as an array of LabelClass. When set, labels independent of the layer.labelingInfo are used to convey information about each bin. This can include the count of all features in the bin, the average, or sum of a numeric attribute.

Any aggregate field defined in fields can be referenced in the label.

Multiple Label classes with different where clauses can be used to define several labels with varying styles on the same feature. Likewise, multiple label classes may be used to label different types of bins (e.g. blue labels for bins with few features and red labels for bins with many features).

Example
// Displays the count inside the bin
layer.featureReduction = {
  type: "binning",
  fields: [{
    name: "aggregateCount",
    statisticType: "count"
  }],
  labelingInfo: [{
    labelExpressionInfo: {
      expression: "$feature.aggregateCount"
    },
    symbol: {
      type: "text",
      color: "white",
      font: {
        size: "12px"
      },
      haloSize: 1,
      haloColor: "black"
    }
  }]
};
labelsVisible Boolean

Indicates whether to display labels for the bins. If true, labels will appear as defined in the labelingInfo property.

Default Value:true
Example
// Turns off bin labels, but preserves labelingInfo
const featureReduction = layer.featureReduction.clone();
featureReduction.labelsVisible = false;
layer.featureReduction = featureReduction;
popupEnabled Boolean

Indicates whether to display a popup when a user clicks or touches a bin. If false, the popup as defined in the popupTemplate will be persisted, but won't be displayed on click/tap.

Default Value:true
Example
// Turns off popups, but preserves popupTemplate
const featureReduction = layer.featureReduction.clone();
featureReduction.popupEnabled = false;
layer.featureReduction = featureReduction;
popupTemplate PopupTemplateautocast

The PopupTemplate to apply to bins. When set, a popupTemplate independent of the layer.popupTemplate is used. This popup can display summary information for each bin, such as feature count or any other field defined in fields.

The PopupTemplate may contain one or more Arcade expressions following the specification defined by the Arcade Feature Reduction Popup Profile. Expressions must return a string or a number and may access data values from the bin and its aggregated features with the $feature and $aggregatedFeatures profile variables.

         text: list
       }

     title: "List of fuel types"
   }
 }]
};
renderer Rendererautocast

The renderer used to style the bins. Depending on the renderer type, features may be visualized with the same symbol or with varying symbols based on the values of the provided fields. Since bins are defined geometrically as polygons, only renderer and symbol types suited for polygon geometries are supported (e.g. HeatmapRenderer is not supported).

Any aggregate field defined in fields may be used by the renderer. Typically, binning visualizations use a field for aggregate count in a color visual variable to visualize the total count of points within each bin.

Example
featureReduction.renderer = {
  type: "simple",  // autocasts as new SimpleRenderer()
  symbol: {
    type: "simple-fill",  // autocasts as new SimpleFillSymbol()
    outline: {  // autocasts as new SimpleLineSymbol()
      width: 0.5,
      color: "white"
    }
  },
  visualVariables: [{
    type: "color",
    field: "aggregateCount",
    stops: [
      { value: 1, color: "white" },
      { value: 1000, color: "blue" }
    ]
  }]
};
type String

The feature reduction type.

For FeatureReductionBinning the type is always "binning".

Example
// enables binning on the layer
layer.featureReduction = {
  type: "binning"
};
