In this article, we will explain how to create and customize a geo chart. So let's get started!
A geo chart is a type of chart that is used to visualize data on a map. It allows you to display data for different geographic regions or locations using different colors, patterns, or other visual elements.
Here is an example of a geo chart using real-world data:
This geo chart shows the population data for a group of countries. The size of each region on the map represents the magnitude of the population data for each country.
For plotting a geo chart, you will need two columns or series of data, one for geography and one for the metric you want to plot. The geography series could contain names of countries, states, continents, or metros. The metric column should contain the data you want to plot in each of these geographies, such as population, rainfall or temperature, or birth rate. To configure the right scope for the map you'll need to specify the following:
- 1.Specify the region type. You can choose from the following options: world, continent, sub-continent, US, or country. This will set the region to be displayed in the geo chart.
- 2.Specify the region name. For example, if you want to show the population for countries in Africa, you would pick the continent for the region type and then Africa for the region name.
- 3.Specify the resolution. You can choose from country level, state (for provinces), or metros. For example, if you want to show population data at the country level, you would select "country" for the resolution.
The configuration shown illustrates how to map the data fields to generate a geo chart for the sample data.
2) To customize the appearance of an area chart, follow these steps:
- 1.Click on the "Customize" tab
- 2.Go to "Colors" accordion to select the desired options
- 3.Select the desired customization options, such as min color, max color and hiding xero values from chart
Geo charts are often used to visualize data that is specific to a geographic region or location. They can be particularly useful for showing patterns and trends in the data, such as the distribution of data points across different regions.
There are a few useful tips to keep in mind when using geo charts:
- 1.Make sure to clearly label the chart and include a descriptive title.
- 2.Use a clear and readable font for the labels and axis ticks to make it easier for readers to understand the chart.
- 3.Use colors and patterns effectively to differentiate between different data points and to make the chart more visually appealing.
- 4.Use tooltips or data labels to provide more detailed information about specific data points.
- 5.Consider using different map projections or zoom levels to provide a more accurate or detailed view of the data.
