Area Maps allow you to visualize geographical data as polygons on a map.

You can use your data to affect the color of the areas.

Adding Data

Area Maps support fields that contain either countries or US states.

By default, a world map is used. If you add a field containing countries, they will be presented in the world map.

If you add a field containing US states, make sure to select USA from MAP TYPE in the design panel on the right.

COLOR

Select a numeric field here to color the areas on the map according to their value and color rule.

The value of the field is displayed in the tooltip of the area on the map. Hover over the area to see it.
