Ramya Priya Updated by Ramya Priya

Tellius allows users to search and analyze data through natural language queries.

Best practices

  1. Leverage Synonyms and Calculated Columns: For a more tailored search experience, consider the use of synonyms, display names, and calculated columns from your dataset to help you formulate more precise queries.
  2. Read the Search Guide “How to Search” section: The Search Guide provides easy-to-reference words and phrases that accommodate a majority of searches. Going through this section will help users formulate better queries and get more accurate results.
  3. Start simple: Instead of asking an extremely complex question, start with simple queries to help get familiar with the system and build confidence.
  4. Utilize the Search Inspector: The Search Inspector is a helpful tool that allows users to see how their queries are being interpreted by the system. This can help users refine their queries and get more accurate results.
  5. Use interactive features: Tellius provides several interactive features such as drilling, switching chart types, and saving to Vizpad on the visualizations. These features allow users to continue exploring from their initial search without having to ask a new query.
