Creating filled maps

To create a filled map

  2. For Visual type, choose the Filled map icon.

  3. Drag a geographic field from the Fields list pane to the Location field well, for example Country.

    A filled map appears with each location in your data filled in by the number of times they appear in your dataset (the count).

    If the field is part of a geographic hierarchy, the hierarchy displays in the field well.

  4. (Optional) Drag a measure from the Fields list pane to the Color field well, for example Sales.

    Each location updates to show the sum of sales.
