Map Chart Overview
👤 This documentation is intended for SQL Users.
Map Charts can be plotted in one of two ways, selecting a column of latitude points and a column of longitude points, or selecting a column of GeoJSON data. The below example walks through a map created from latitude and longitude points. For more information on GeoJSON maps, please refer to the documentation here.
Plotting a Standard Map
Start by selecting all the latitudes and longitudes of users in the Bay Area (with zip codes starting with "94"):
Next, the "Map" chart type can be selected from the dropdown in the Series Settings tab:
This displays a map of the specified geographic points.
It is possible to zoom in and out of the map by scrolling over it. The "Save Map Position" button will save the chart at the current level of zoom.
Points can also be displayed in different colors via series segmentation. A third column can be selected to act as the series segmentation.
The Series Settings tab allows users to select the additional non-latitude, non-longitude columns to segment by.
Now, the resulting chart displays both colors:
Users can specify the plotting types of each segment by editing the "Series Type" options. Any Series Types specified here will overwrite the Map Type specified in the "Series Settings" tab. Different types can be mixed and matched on a single chart.
Other Map Charting Options
Additional charting options can be found under the "Map Display Settings" menu at the top of the "Chart Format."
For detailed examples of the above chart types, refer to the documentation below:
Map charts can also be rendered in a Satellite view.
