Geo with Makers Chart

In this article, we will explain how to create and customize a geo with markers or bubbles chart. So let's get started!
A geo chart with bubbles or markers is a chart that visualizes data on a map using a collection of bubbles or markers. Each bubble or marker represents a single data point, and the position of the bubble or marker on the map represents the location of the data point. The size of the bubble or marker can represent a second variable, and the color of the bubble or marker can represent the third variable.
Here is an example of a geo chart with bubbles using real-world data:
This geo chart shows the GDP and population data for a group of countries. The color of the bubbles represents the magnitude of the GDP data, and the size of the bubbles represents the magnitude of the population data.
Sample data:
GDP ($)
United States

How-to build a geo chart?

  1. 1.
    Navigate to Add New Chart screen
  2. 2.
    Select data source
  3. 4.
    Configure and customize the chart to create the desired visualization.

Geo with Markers chart configuration:

For plotting geo with markers chart, you will need at least two columns or series of data, one for geography and one for the metric you want to plot as bubble color. 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. Additionally, you can plot another metric as bubble size (optional).
To configure the right scope for the map, you'll need to specify the following:
  1. 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. 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. 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. 1.
    Click on the "Customize" tab
  2. 2.
    Go to "Colors" accordion to select the desired options
  3. 3.
    Select the desired customization options, such as min color, max color and hiding xero values from chart
Geo charts with bubbles or markers are often used to visualize data that is related to specific locations on a map. They can be particularly useful for showing patterns and trends in the data, such as correlations or clusters.
Here are a few useful tips for creating and using geo charts with bubbles or markers:
  1. 1.
    Make sure to clearly label the chart and include a descriptive title. This helps to give context to the data and helps readers understand the purpose of the chart.
  2. 2.
    Use a clear and readable font for the labels and axis ticks. This makes it easier for readers to understand the chart and helps to ensure that the chart is visually appealing.
  3. 3.
    Use a meaningful scale for the size and color of the bubbles or markers. This helps to emphasize the most important data points and makes it easier for readers to understand the magnitude of the data.
  4. 4.
    Use colors and patterns effectively to differentiate between different data points and to make the chart more visually appealing.
  5. 5.
    Use tooltips or data labels to provide more detailed information about specific data points.
  6. 6.
    Consider using a different type of chart, such as a bar chart or a pie chart, if you have a large number of data points or if you want to show more detailed information.
  7. 7.
    Keep in mind that geo charts are best suited for visualizing data that is related to specific locations on a map. If you have data that is not related to specific locations, you may want to consider using a different type of chart.
