Continental/Regional Map

Intro

In Domo, you can add maps representing data for countries in specific continents and world regions. Continental and regional maps require only two data columns or rows from your DataSet. One column or row contains the names or two-letter ISO codes of the countries in the continent or region, and the other contains the values for each country. These values are represented in your map by varying shades of color, each of which corresponds to a specific range. Ranges are determined automatically based on the distribution of values in your DataSet and are represented by a legend, which is automatically included beside the map.For information about value, category, and series data, see Understanding Chart Data.

Note: When multiple instances of a single region occur in a DataSet, the values for that region are summed to show a single value for the region in the map. For example, if your DataSet contained three rows for "Georgia," the values for the rows would be summed, and the Georgia region in the map would show the total value. You cannot turn off this automatic aggregation in maps.

For information about world maps, see World Map. For information about country maps, see Country Map. For information about latitude-longitude maps, see Latitude-Longitude Map. For information about U.S. county maps, see U.S. County Map.

For information about troubleshooting when an area in your map does not show data but there is data, see Troubleshooting.

Powering continental and regional maps

In the Analyzer, you choose the columns containing the data for your map. For more information about choosing data columns, see Applying DataSet Columns to Your Chart.

For more information about formatting charts in the Analyzer, see KPI Card Building Part 2: The Analyzer.

The following graphic shows you how data from a typical column-based spreadsheet is converted into a continental map:

Customizing continental and regional maps

You can customize the appearance of a continent or region map by editing its Chart Properties. Properties for all chart types are listed and described in Chart Properties. Unique properties of maps include the following. You can click a thumbnail image to see a larger image.

Property

Description

Example

General > Theme

Allows you to change the color theme for the map. For more information about setting colors, see Changing the Default Colors in Your Chart.

General > Hover Text

Specifies text to replace the default text for hovers in a map. For more information about creating hover text, including a list of available macros, see Formatting Data Label and Hover Text in Your Chart.

General > Hide Total

Hides the total value and percent of total value that normally display for each country or region in the Details view for the map.

General > Balanced Distribution

Adjusts maps to include a balanced number of items within each range. This is helpful in spreading values across each range when your data contains extreme outliers.

In the pair of maps shown in the screenshots at right, the values of most of the Canadian provinces are in the range of 100 to 1500. The outlier, Alberta, has a value of 10,000. Balanced Distribution has not been turned on in the top map, so a skewed version of the data is shown—Alberta appears dark and all of the other provinces appear light. In the bottom map, the user has turned on Balanced Distribution, so Alberta is grouped into the same range as the province with the next highest value.

General > Override Maximum Value 

Lets you specify the maximum value for a map or Heat Map.

By default, Domo uses the highest value in the DataSet as the maximum value. However, by setting this property you can override this value. 


 

Values > Label Format

Determines the general number format for hover text and legend items in maps.


 

Values > Decimal Places

Determines the number of decimal places used in decimal values in hover text and legend items in maps.


 

Values > Negative Numbers

Determines the format for negative numbers in hover text and legend items in maps
