Formatting Options in Vitara Map Chart

Vitara Maps includes an infinite number of formatting possibilities. When the user hits the ‘Edit’ button, a popup window with all of the formatting options appears. The ’Edit Properties’ panel of the map chart is seen in the screenshot below.

This is the properties editor, which may be used to change the palette colors, data label style, enabling or disabling the tooltip, and legend of the map chart. We can also use Thresholds to colorize the chart when a specific condition is met. To do this, go to the ‘Thresholds’ page and set a new threshold.

The ‘Map’ tab contains map-specific properties. This tab contains map layer, map type, grouping, and border properties.

Map Types - Choropleth map and map bubble

Choropleth map:

A choropleth map displays metric data as color gradients. The metric data will be divided into five ranges: top 20%, 20% to 40%, 40% to 60%, 60% to 80%, and below 20%. For each range, a color is applied. The snapshot for this type of chart, which depicts the human population for each continent, is shown below.

The ‘Play By’ option causes the vitara map chart to display ‘Map Attribute’ elements for each element of the ‘play by’ attribute at a specific time instant. We can halt and restart the game at any moment.The screenshot below is of a dashboard that displays information about US states by area.
