This section describes how to create a geomap. For more information, see Dashboard overview and Basic dashboard operations. If you need to edit or create datasets, see Create a dataset.

Similar to Geo bubble, geomaps use the gradation of color to reflect data values and distribution.

A geomap is a geographical map with colors assigned to specific regions. Regions are determined by data dimensions, such as province. Colors are determined by data measures, such as order amount and profit amount.

Note

For each geomap, one dimension must be specified to determine the regions. This dimension must be about geographic information. One to five measures can be specified to determine the colors of regions.

The following scenario uses the company_sales_record dataset as an example.

Scenario: Compare the transportation costs, orders amounts, and profits across multiple areas
